Quit 'Cold Turkey' During Upcoming Great American Smokeout Events

These events are free and open to the public.

Resources from National Quitlines, QuitSmart and the American Cancer Society will be available, as well as information on lung cancer screenings, including the low-dose CT scan, which is used to detect lung cancer at its earliest stages.
