It’s no secret vaping is on the rise, as are the health concerns among users.
Responding to what has become a pressing public health issue, Dallas College and UT Southwestern Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center are collaborating to offer free workshops on nicotine addiction.
Attend On Campus or Online
“Clear Choices, Clean Breathing” workshops provide college students with resources and support to quit smoking.
Lunchtime workshops will be held during the Spring 2024 semester at each of the college’s seven main campuses with snacks and swag for attendees. There also will be one online workshop.
Free Shirts for Early Participants
To encourage participation, the first 10 attendees to show up at each campus workshop will receive a complimentary Wellness Influencer T-shirt to proudly display their commitment to a healthy (and smoke-free!) lifestyle.
Hands-on and interactive, the vaping workshops will start at 11 a.m., making it convenient for students to participate during their lunch break.
More Reasons To Listen In
“Clear Choices, Clean Breathing” is your chance to learn about different aspects of nicotine addiction and gain valuable insights as well as key tools to kick the habit for good. Attendees share a common goal: to break free from the grip of nicotine addiction while also experiencing a supportive community!
