“Let’s Clear the Air” Event

Let's Clear the Air

The “Let’s Clear the Air” tabling event will take place from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Monday, August 25. Sponsored by Student Health and Wellness, the event will be held in the Student Union, 2nd Floor Atrium.

The tabling event will provide students an opportunity to learn more about the Smoke-Free UMKC campus policy, get information on supporting someone in their efforts to quit or obtain information for themselves on quitting.

A health educator and nurse practitioner will provide the appropriate dosage of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) free to interested smokers. Also, a representative from Healthy for Life will provide information to faculty and staff on resources available to them.

Information on the six-week smoking cessation sessions will be available, and the online resources will be given to those students who receive the free NRT at the tabling event, including patches, lozenges and gum. Additional giveaways also will be provided.
