MAURY REGIONAL ANNOUNCES UPCOMING SMOKING CESSATION CLASSES

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — If you have decided to break the habit of smoking, Maury Regional Medical Center offers support through a group smoking cessation program during the months of July and August.

The program will consist of a series of four classes held each Monday beginning July 11 from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room at the medical center. Classes are as follows:

  • July 11 – Starting Out & Removing Roadblocks
  • July 18 – Getting Ready to Quit
  • July 25 – Staying Off Cigarettes
  • August 1 – Questions and Celebrations

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