LITTLE ROCK — Make 2017 the year you quit smoking for good, with help from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

The small-group Freedom from Smoking program will meet from 4-5:30 p.m. for seven Wednesdays beginning Jan. 4 in room 10104 on the 10th floor of the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. There is no cost to participate.

To register, contact certified tobacco treatment specialist Pat Franklin, APRN, at (501) 944-5934 or plfranklin@uams.edu.

Participants receive one-on-one support, hear first-hand stories from former smokers, and get information on nicotine replacement therapies, healthy eating habits and stress management.

Since it was introduced by the American Lung Association (ALA) almost 30 years ago, the Freedom From Smoking program has helped more than a million Americans end their addiction to nicotine. The program is offered by the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute and uses materials provided by the ALA.
