Great American Smokeout observed at PSU

If the growing non-smoking culture in the United States isn’t reason enough for college students to kick the habit, two Pittsburg State University organizations are hoping next week’s events give smokers the motivation they need.

On Thursday, Nov. 15, the Gorillas in Your Midst Peer Health Education group as well as Student Prevention & Wellness will take part in the 2007 Great American Smokeout. This year’s theme, “If Not Now…When?” will be observed at Pitt State through several activities including a quit smoking slogan contest, tobacco jeopardy with a chance to win prizes, free “quit kits” with an outlined plan to identify smoking styles and handle cravings, and free medical information on how to quit. The Crawford County Health Department will also provide information on how to stop smoking. The activities will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Overman Student Center.

For more information on the Great American Smokeout or the day’s activities, contact J.T. Knoll at 620-235-4062 or at
