Ditch the Tobacco

Monday, May 17, 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm


Smoking kills more people than alcohol, AIDS, car crashes, illegal drugs, murders and suicides combined — and thousands more die from other tobacco-related causes — such as fires caused by smoking (more than 1,000 deaths/year nationwide) and smokeless tobacco use.

In Indiana, over 11,000 Hoosiers die each year from tobacco use or exposure. 1 in 5 adults smoke. Approximately 15% of pregnant women smoke. The current smoking rate of nearly 23% leaves the state ranked 44th among all states.

It is time to quit. IU Health Arnett is offering an 8-week virtual tobacco cessation group for individuals who are ready to quit tobacco. The meetings are aimed at providing support from a Tobacco Treatment Specialist combined with free nicotine replacement and the support of others dealing with the same concerns.

To register for the class contact Tori Ramsey at 765.427.0345 or at tramsey1@iuhealth.org or Diana Lockhart at 574.583.5667 or dlockhart2@iuhealth.org
