​Smoking Cessation 2017 

Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable disease, cancer and death in the United States. In 2018 a financial incentive will be given to nonsmokers and to individuals enrolled in the smoking cessation programs offered by CityFit. Beginning in 2017 we are partnering with Beat the Pack and Smoke Free For Life to offer smoking cessation classes for employees interested in quitting smoking.

At the end of this year, the Gurus will help you obtain smoking cessation medications, some of which are free under Obamacare, in advance of the cessation classes. Our Wellness Gurus are certified tobacco treatment specialists and will be leading classes in smoking cessation. Classes will be held at multiple city locations to accommodate your busy schedules. Join us as we take a stand to Beat the Pack!
