Free Quit Smoking Help with the National Urban League
Smoking is expensive, a hassle and bad for your health. Your risk of lung disease, diabetes, and even cancer increase when you smoke, and secondhand smoke harms those around us. In fact, tobacco use is a major contributor to the three leading causes of death among African-Americans—heart disease, cancer and stroke—and causes 45,000 African-American deaths every year.
Knowing all that still doesn't make quitting easy. With support from the CVS Health Foundation, the American Lung Association and Greater Washington Urban League are offering free quit-smoking support to African-American communities in Washington, D.C. Every smoker can quit if they keep trying and this program will give them the tools they need to achieve their freedom from smoking.
To find out if you or someone you love is eligible for free quit smoking support – available online, in-person or over the phone – call Laura Hale at (202) 719-2810 or Laura.Hale@Lung.org.
