With McHenry County College’s campus going smoke free on October 1st, a quit smoking class might draw some students I saw standing outside last Thursday night.
Here’s the information on the 7-week program:
McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) and Centegra Health System are partnering to offer a quit smoking class for adults beginning on Wednesday, September 28. The 7-week class will teach practical ways to end nicotine addiction through group support and behavior modification. It will also review nicotine replacement products that are currently on the market.
Instruction is provided by McHenry County Health Department staff that are trained in the American Lung Association’s “Freedom from Smoking” program.
Classes will be held at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center in Crystal Lake, located at 200 Congress Parkway, on Wednesdays, from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. A $25 course fee, payable at the first class, is refundable if all seven sessions are attended. Class members will also receive a free 3-day pass to the Health Bridge Fitness Center.
