Ready to quit tobacco? Tammy Walker Cancer Center can help.

Tammy Walker Cancer Center tobacco cessation classes will be offered via Zoom starting next week. Participants can either attend the noon class on Mondays or the 5:30 p.m. class on Tuesdays.

Participants will need to complete the online registration form at www.bit.ly/MCATobaccoCessation. (Note: the link is case sensitive.)

Once participants have registered they will be mailed the materials they will need for the class. Materials used are from the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center.

A new feature is that participants can begin the classes at any time. To ensure that they have all of the information and are ready to start the class, participants will have a short call with the facilitator prior to the first class.

The program is made up of eight one-hour classes that include the following.

Strategies to quit and stay tobacco-free

How to cope with stress without using tobacco

Medications that might help
