The University of Georgia College of Pharmacy will offer a six-week Beat the Pack Tobacco Cessation Program on Tuesdays starting Aug. 22. The class will be held from 5:30-6:45 p.m. in the community room of the Athens-Clarke County Firehouse #7, which is located at 2350 Barnett Shoals Road in Athens. According to lead instructor Kay Brooks, an associate director in the College of Pharmacy’s Experience Programs, the class is open free to the public; however, “Attendees should be committed to participating.” 

Along with Brooks, trained pharmacy students will provide group programming and individualized coaching, while helping attendees develop a personalized “quit” plan. In addition, each six-week session will focus on tobacco-use issues, such as health risks, reasons to quit, cessation aids, coping with the urges to use tobacco, handling relapses and maintenance.

Persons interested in further information and registration for the Beat the Pack Cessation Program may contact the College of Pharmacy at 706-542-3893 or email .
