Tobacco Cessation

Well done on taking a step to quit tobacco use. We are committed to providing and identifying resources to support current tobacco users’ efforts to quit!  We recommend a combination of strategies including:  self-help quit guides, in-person and telephone counseling and support, and medications.

Students interested in tobacco cessation can schedule an appointment in the primary care clinic to discuss tobacco cessation and options available to students.
