Great American Smoke-Out Information Table

Tuesday, November 17, 2015, PAC Concourse

11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Every year, on the third Thursday of November, smokers across the nation take part in the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout. They may use the date to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and then quit smoking that day. The Great American Smokeout challenges people to stop using tobacco and helps people know about the many tools they can use to quit.

In many towns and communities, local volunteers use this day to publicize the need to quit, and press for laws that control tobacco use and discourage teens from starting, and support people who want to quit.     http://www.cancer.org/healthy/stayawayfromtobacco/greatamericansmokeout/index
