It is important, even during these pandemic times, to keep this crucial tool to quit tobacco use available to those in our region who are looking to make a positive change in their health and their lives.”

With the support of smoking cessation counselors trained in the American Lung Association’s Freedom from Smoking program, Mercy Health – Lourdes Hospital’s program caters to individuals who have made the decision and are ready to quit smoking.
