Everyone Loves a Quitter: Join the Great American Smokeout, November 15th

November 13, 2012

Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, yet about 43.8 million Americans still smoke cigarettes — Nearly 1 in every 5 adults. The Public Health Institute supports The American Cancer Society in marking the 37th 'Great American Smokeout' on November 15 and encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day.
