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 month of October.

The program will consist of a series of four classes held each Monday beginning October 3 from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room at the medical center. Classes are as follows:

  • October 3 – Starting Out & Removing Roadblocks
  • October 10 – Getting Ready to Quit
  • October 17 – Staying Off Cigarettes

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