NORWALK, CT - Norwalk Hospital is offering a free smoking cessation program beginning on April 17 at 6 P.M. in the third floor respiratory classroom in the Section of Pulmonary Medicine at the hospital. The program consists of six weekly sessions, Thursdays April 17 and 24, Tuesday, April 29, and Thursdays, May 1, 8 and 22.

The hospital’s Section of Pulmonary Medicine offers the smoking cessation program, free of charge, as a community service. The instructor is Beverly Jacoby, RRT, of the Section of Pulmonary Medicine. “We help educate people on why it is so difficult to quit and then help with a plan and building motivation. The program employs multiple techniques in assisting smokers interested in quitting. Information on nicotine replacement therapy, controlling weight during the quitting process and the health benefits of quitting are included. Group support and expert counseling are key aspects of our program, Jacoby explained. This program has been offered twice a year by the Section of Pulmonary Medicine since the 1970’s.

The smoking cessation program provides a general knowledge related to smoking, a plan of action to stop smoking and social support in the effort of quitting.

Early registration is requested for the smoking cessation program. To register or obtain more information about this program, please call (203) 852-2484.
