37th annual Great American Smokeout is November 15

 

  Piedmont Henry Hospital and Moye’s Pharmacy encourage smokers to make November 15 - the Great American Smokeout - the day they decide to quit smoking.

  In honor of the American Cancer Society’s 37th annual Great American Smokeout, Piedmont Henry and Moye’s Pharmacy will have an information table set up in the hospital’s South Tower lobby from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tips on ways to give tobacco users the best chance to quit and stay quit will be available as well as information on smoking cessation programs offered by both Piedmont Henry and Moye’s Pharmacy.

  Today, tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the U.S., yet about 43.8 million Americans still smoke cigarettes, according to the American Cancer Society. That’s nearly 1 in every 5 adults.

  Making the decision to quit smoking is not an easy one, but smokers take an important step towards a healthier life if they do so. Piedmont Henry helps those interested in quitting by offering Fresh Start smoking cessation courses, which are offered several times throughout the year.

  To further promote healthy lifestyles in Henry County, Piedmont Henry will become a tobacco and smoke-free campus on January 1, 2013. For more information on Piedmont Henry Hospital, visit www.piedmonthenry.org.
