18 Celebrate “Freedom from Smoking” Completion

The Faculty Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) held a celebration on Dec. 7th for 18 employees who completed the Freedom from Smoking program.

“We are proud of our group members,” says Melissa Morgan, Manager of Wellness Programs.  “It takes a lot of hard work and courage to make a significant life change like stopping smoking.”

The American Lung Association program offered through FSAP features a step-by-step plan for quitting smoking in a group setting. Each session is designed to help smokers gain control over their behavior with a science-based curriculum that encourages them to work on the process and problems of quitting both individually and as part of a group.

To promote and encourage tobacco cessation campus-wide, Emory is currently offering this course free of charge to both University and Healthcare employees and their spouses/SSDPs.  And employees are taking advantage of the opportunity.  “We’ve definitely seen an increase in enrollment,” states Morgan, “We had one group complete its 8-session program and two new groups begin during the first week of December.”

For more information about the program or to be placed on the waiting list for a future class, contact FSAP at 404-727-4328.
