Later this month OSF St. Anthony’s Health Center will be kicking off another series of classes in an effort to encourage smokers to kick the habit.  “Freedom from Smoking” will begin with an orientation session on Monday, September 14 at 6pm in the Saint Clare’s Auditorium.

Tina Bennett, trained smoking cessation facilitator at OSF St. Anthony’s, tells The Big Z this is a program that will help teach people how to quit.

She says that the decision to stop smoking can cut the risk of developing coronary heart disease in half and also greatly reduces your risk of developing lung cancer.  To register for the program, call 465-2264.
