Tobacco Cessation Classes Offered by KDMC
King’s Daughters Medical
Center’s Tobacco Cessation program has helped hundreds of people throughout our
region break their addiction to cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products.
Participants meet for one
hour each week for 24 weeks. Classes are offered year-round and can be joined
at any time. Courses take place at the following times:
Tobacco cessation products,
behavior modification and group support are the cornerstones of this highly
successful program, which is medically supervised by oncologist David Goebel,
M.D. The classes are free, however, participants are responsible for purchasing
tobacco cessation products (patches, lozenges, and/or gum or Chantix). Class participants
also receive access to the Ashland Area YMCA while enrolled.
All sessions take place at
the KDMC Health Education Center (lower level of Lexington Avenue parking
garage, 2201 Lexington Ave.). Registration is preferred and can be made by
