Smoking cessation clinic

The College of Pharmacy is offering a smoking cessation clinic starting July 20. Classes will meet from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesdays at Training and Development.

The clinic is adapted from Pfizer’s Beat-the-Pack Smoking Cessation Program. During the six-week program, topics will include the health risks of smoking, reasons to quit, smoking cessation aids, coping with the urge to smoke, handling relapse and staying off cigarettes. Pharmacy students also will conduct group and individual counseling sessions.

The classes are free but space is limited. The program will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis as registration forms are received. Registration forms are online at For questions about the program, call (706) 542-5328 or email
