This lunchtime seminar, offered by the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program in partnership with the UM AHEC Quit Smoking Now program, addresses the challenges involved with smoking cessation and informs participants about vaping—the harmful effects of e-cigarettes. Attendees receive valuable resources, tools, and tips for coping with the quitting process. Certified tobacco treatment specialist Mohammad Asad, of the UM AHEC Quite Smoking Now program, will facilitate the seminar. The program’s design is based on others developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Cancer Institute, the American Lung Association, and the State of Florida in conjunction with former smokers. Quit Smoking Now is available to UM students, employees, and the community at large at no charge.
