Where: Riverdale Elementary School
1160 W. 4400 South

When: Tuesdays, January 22 through March 11

Who: The free class is taught by certified smoking-cessation instructors from the Weber-Morgan Heath Department. The courses are taken from the American Lung Association’s “Freedom From Smoking” curriculum.

“Now is the time to break free from your cigarette addiction,” says health educator Anna Guymon. “If you’ve been told to quit or want to do it for your own health and that of your family, we will provide support and education that will help you reach your goals.”
