Quittin’ Time Week Wraps With Success, Call to Action to Rally
Quittin’ Time in Tennessee wrapped on Friday, but as was noted in last Tuesday’s kickoff event at the Tennessee State Capitol, there is more work to do!
Alongside dozens of attending leaders from the state’s government, business, and non-profit organizations, Tennessee Department of Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH, Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness CEO Richard Johnson, and NashvilleHealth Founder Senator Bill Frist, MD, discussed the critical need to come together and help Tennesseans quit smoking.
We each play a role. What is your organization doing to help the people around you stop smoking and live healthier, longer lives? Visit NashvilleHealth’s Quittin’ Time Toolkit page for ideas and tools to engage and rally your community around the need to reduce our city’s smoking rate.
