Join the Annual Great American Smokeout Nov. 19-21

| November 15, 2013

Webster Wellness with representation from Webster students, faculty and staff would like for you to join us in the efforts to educate, motivate, empower and stimulate members of the University for the Annual Great American Smokeout.

Every year, on the third Thursday of November, smokers across the nation take part in the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout. They may use the date to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and then quit smoking that day. The event challenges people to stop using tobacco and helps people know about the many tools they can use to quit and stay quit.

Webster Wellness  and other wellness supporters will provide information tables for resources and facts in order to support students, faculty and staff to “Commit to Quit.” As a fun activity, there will be a balloon challenge at each information table.

Information Tables:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 19, 11 a.m. – 1 pm, UC lower level commons area
  • Wednesday, Nov. 20, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., EAB 2nd floor commons area
  • Thursday, Nov. 21, 11 a.m.- 1 p.m., Sverdrup Lobby (closest to commuter lounge)

For those committing to quit smoking cold turkey, “Cold Turkey Sandwiches” from Monty’s Sandwich Company will be offered on Thursday, Nov. 21, in the Sverdrup Building lobby from 11 a.m. -1 p.m. There will also be free #gorlokstrong shirts for those willing to throw their leftover cigarettes in the trash at the table.

For those at extended campuses who want to receive information or plan to quit, please email wellness@webster.edu requesting the information.
