Title: Ready. Set. Quit. You Can Be Tobacco Free

You can "break" the habit. We're here to help!

Imagine tasting flavors in your food you’ve never savored before. Imagine cutting your risk for a heart attack in half. Imagine saving $150 (or more) a month – that’s over $1,800 a year!

If you’re ready to kick the habit once and for all, Platte Valley Medical Center is here to help you. We offer a free smoking cessation information class for individuals who are ready to quit. The sessions are taught by hospital respiratory therapists (RTs) and include resources to help you begin your smoke-free journey.

2012 Classes:

Classes are held on Thursdays from 6-8 p.m.

  • The physical and emotional benefits of quitting
  • How to remove roadblocks
  • About nicotine replacement therapies and the correct usage and potential side-effects of prescription quit smoking medications

The informational class is free and includes education and resources customized to your individualized needs. Classes are held in Conference Room C at Platte Valley Medical Center, 1600 Prairie Center Parkway in Brighton. Registration is required.
