Ready to quit tobacco for good? We can help. Emory is committed to supporting members of the Emory community and offers numerous resources for those who need help quitting tobacco. 

  Great American Smokeout

Emory promotes the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year by encouraging smokers to use the date either to make a plan to quit or to stop smoking that day. Keep your eye out for activities, education, and giveaways on Emory’s campuses in November.
