Quit Tobacco – Adults

Quitting tobacco use is hard work. Wherever you’re at in the process – we’re here to support you!

We offer tobacco cessation workshops three (3) times per year using the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking group program. This workshop is an 8-session, 7-week FREE curriculum that provides helpful tools, resources, and social support to help in making your quit attempt a success. Anyone (18+ years old) who uses a tobacco product (cigarette, vape/e-cig, chew/smokeless tobacco, pipes/cigars, etc.) is welcome to join!

Please visit for current dates and times. Workshops are offered in the winter, summer, and fall. If you’re interested in joining and we’re in between workshops, let us know and we’d be happy to send you resources and add you to the waitlist for the next one.

‘Quit The Nic’ – Teens

In 2024, we’re excited to start offering much needed tobacco cessation workshops for teens who vape, smoke, or use any other tobacco product. We use the American Lung Association’s Not On Tobacco (N-O-T) curriculum, which is a 10-session, 9-week program that provides tools, resources, and social support for teens that want to quit.

C.H.A.M.P.S 2.0 – Improving Cancer Screening and Risk Reduction

C.H.A.M.P.S 2.0 (Cultivating HPV Awareness and Mobilizing for Prevention and Screening) is our initiative designed to connect people living in rural communities to health services (e.g. HPV vaccination and cancer screening) and resources that support healthy living/cancer risk-reduction.

About the Project:

Individuals filled out a brief survey assessing several health behaviors, like whether or not they’ve been vaccinated against HPV and if they currently use tobacco or not, among others. After completing the survey, we mailed participants a free Care Kit that contained items (like a sun hat, sunscreen, vitamin-C packet, etc.) and information (types of cancer screening, county-specific local resources, tips for talking to their provider, etc.) pertaining to cancer risk reduction and cancer screening.

Through this project, our goal is to empower individuals to access cancer screening in their community and engage in behaviors that reduce cancer risk.

Project C.H.A.M.P 

Project C.H.A.M.P (Cultivating HPV Awareness and Mobilizing for Prevention) is our initiative created to understand the level of knowledge and awareness that teens and adults living in rural communities have about human papillomavirus (HPV) and the HPV vaccine.

To implement our survey and educational campaign, we partnered with local schools, community organizations, and hospital facilities. The data collected from the surveys allowed us to better understand what the community needs so we can provide more targeted and useful resources.
