Group plans activities for Great American Smokeout

Gorillas in You Midst, a peer health education group at Pittsburg State University, and PSU Student Prevention and Wellness, will sponsor several activities for the Great American Smokeout on Thursday, Nov. 16. The theme for this year's event is "Smart, Sexy and Smokefree."

From 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on that day, the students will staff a booth in the main level lounge of the Overman Student Center. In addition to a stop-smoking display from the Crawford County Health Department, there will be medical information on smoking cessation, free "quit kits" for smokers, information on how to help a friend quit smoking and telephone and Internet resources for support. Students will also be invited to play Tobacco Jeopardy for prizes and there will be cash prizes for a slogan contest.
