Eight-week tobacco cessation program available to campus community

This summer, the Case Western Reserve University campus became tobacco-free, and now the Wellness Program will offer the campus community the opportunity to participate in a tobacco cessation program.

The program will partner with an experienced and certified tobacco cessation educator from Ease@Work to provide an eight-week cessation class to faculty, staff and students.

The final class of 2017 will take place Thursdays from Sept. 14 to Nov. 12 (there will be no class Oct. 11) at 12:30 p.m. in Crawford Hall, Room 720.

During the class, participants will:

  • Assess readiness to end tobacco use;
  • Identify reasons for wanting to quit and the barriers to quitting;
  • Develop awareness around when they smoke in order to identify triggers and make a plan for behavior change.

This class is free to the university community, but registration in advance is required. Contact program leader Valerie Clause to register for this program.
