Vicksburg native Kimberly Dawson will be hosting a Freedom from Smoking Clinic on May 17, 2021.
Dawson, who is the Mississippi Tobacco Free Project Director of Warren and Claiborne County, announced the meeting this week after the Food and Drug Administration took steps to ban menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars.
“The Freedom from Smoking Clinic is for eight weeks,” Dawson said. “This clinic includes components of an intensive intervention as recommended in the United States Department of Health and Human Services Clinical Practice Guideline Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence. The program has a positive focus. It emphasizes the benefit of better health and improved lifestyle habits as well as mastery of one’s own life. The activities and assignments provide individuals who smoke with proven strategies for changing their behavior and lifestyle.”
The clinic will be free to attend. To learn more and start the journey of nonsmoking, please reach out to Kimberly Dawson at [email protected] or call 601-262-8888.
