QuitCore – fall sessions announced

August 25, 2009

QuitCore is a FREE group support program from Alberta Health Services, designed to help people quit smoking. Led by trained instructors, the three-and-a-half month program includes eight in-depth sessions that offer participants the most effective methods and tools to help them become smoke-free.

Studies show that interventions from health profes­sionals can lead to significant quit attempts and quit rates. Please speak to your patients about their tobacco use and encourage them to explore QuitCore as a way to quit smoking.  

Sessions begin on September 22, 2009 in Airdrie, Calgary, Camrose, Claresholm, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Lethbridge, Stettler and Wetaskiwin. People wishing to register for a course in their area should call 1-866-710-QUIT (7848) or visit quitcore.ca for more information.

If you would like to receive copies of QuitCore promotional materials to distribute to your patients, please contact Rocky Hynes at 403-476-1321, or by email at rhynes@webershandwick.com.
