Upcoming Events

November 20, 2014 Coalition Meeting on the second floor in the Hamilton Room in the Franklin County Government Center at 6:45 pm. This meeting is open to the public.

November 20, 2014 The American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout event takes place on the third Thursday of November each year, encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and stop smoking that day. By quitting – even for one day – smokers take an important step toward a healthier life – one that can help reduce their cancer risk. Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States, yet about 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes – which amounts to about 1 in every 5 adults. As of 2012, there were also 13.4 million cigar smokers in the US, and 2.3 million people who smoked tobacco in pipes, which are also dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco use. The health benefits of quitting start the moment a person stops smoking. Quitting when you are younger will reduce your health risks more, but quitting at any age can give back years of life that would be lost by continuing to smoke. Quitting is hard, but you can increase your chances of success with help. The American Cancer Society can tell you about the steps you can take to quit smoking and provide quit-smoking programs, resources, and support that can increase your chances of quitting successfully. To learn about the available tools, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org/smokeout to find free tips and tools. You can also find free tips and tools on the Indiana Tobacco Quitline at www.in.gov/quitline or by calling 1- 800-QUIT-NOW.
