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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
