Get Help to Quit Smoking
We are committed to helping our patients, and the community at large, in their smoking cessation efforts. It is particularly important to us, given that an estimated 85 to 90 percent of lung cancers are related to tobacco use. Even if you have smoked for many years, you can still benefit from quitting today.
The Quit Smoking Now program is offered through the UF College of Medicine and UF Area Health Education Centers. Please visit http://pulmonary.medicine.ufl.edu/2012/10/08/its-never-too-late-to-quit/ for information on how to participate.
