Program Created To Help Kick Smoking Habit
Miami Dade College Kendall Campus has partnered with the Miami-Dade Area Health Education Center to extend the Quit Smoking Now Program after a college-wide smoking ban took effect in April.
Classes are available at no cost throughout the summer starting June 1 on Wednesdays at noon at the Kendall Campus, 11011 S.W. 104 St., Room G-122. It is aimed to launch MDC’s initiative to maintain smoke-free facilities.
The class is open to all MDC students and employees.
"If [students or employees] feel the habit is too strong and need someone to talk to about it. The Wellness Center and myself are available to assist," said Magdalena Rosell, Wellness & Fitness Center director at Kendall Campus, who is working with the Miami-Dade Area Health Education Center to offer the class.
Literature on smoking’s harmful effects on the human body will be provided as well as a six-week supply of nicotine patches.
The support group will be taught by tobacco specialists. Resources for students includes 24-hour phone assistance from AHEC members.INFO BOX:
