Emory promotes the Great American Smokeout in November 

The 2017 Great American Smokeout is Thursday, November 16th

The American Cancer Society started this national event to encourage tobacco cessation by establishing an official quit day. Emory will be celebrating the Great American Smokeout (GASO) by encouraging all employees to spread the word about our tobacco cessation programs & resources, and to support those who are trying to quit.

Take the Pledge and Start Fresh!
All employees are encouraged to take a pledge in support of GASO. Current smokers can pledge to try quitting on the official quit day. Non-smokers can also take the pledge to give up one of their own unhealthy behavior or habits in support of family, friends, and colleagues who are trying to quit.

Anyone who takes the pledge by noon on Nov. 16th, whether they are a smoker or non-smoker, will be entered into a drawing to win one of several pair of AMC movie tickets. To take the pledge, go to:
