The Wellness Center will be at the Fire Safety Expo today, Tuesday, Oct. 4, on the John P. Monahan Plaza. If you would like to quit smoking and need extra support, stop by anytime from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to grab a quit kit.
Each kit contains nicotine gum with instructions on how to properly use the gum, mints, chewing gum, and other resources that guide individuals through the process and helps them stop smoking.
Funding for the quit kits was provided by the Michael Larson Memorial Fund, which was established through a donation by the family of Michael Larson, a St. Thomas sophomore who died last year in a house fire caused by a cigarette. The fund was established to promote fire prevention and smoking cessation programs.
