Tobacco cessation classes

College of Pharmacy students will offer their “Beat the Pack” program to help those who want to stop using tobacco.

The program is free, but space is limited to 10 participants. The registration deadline is Aug. 21.

Open to UGA employees and students as well as the Athens community, the six-week program will be held Aug. 25, Sept. 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 5:45-6:45 p.m. at the UGA Training and Development Center, located at 315 S. Thomas St. Parking in the center’s lot is free after 5 p.m.

Based on Pfizer’s “Beat the Pack” smoking cessation program, the UGA sessions will focus on tobacco-use issues. The classes also can be adapted to help those who want to stop chewing tobacco.
