MRMC announces Smoking Cessation Classes for April

COLUMBIA, Tenn. —If you have decided to break the habit of smoking, MRMC offers support through a group smoking cessation program that will take place during the month of April.

The program will consist of a series of four classes held each Monday beginning April 7 from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room at the medical center. Classes are as follows:  

  •     April 7 – Starting Out & Removing Roadblocks
  •     April 14 – Getting Ready to Quit

All instructors are former smokers and health professionals who understand the challenges that come with breaking this habit.
