St. Joe’s is proud to be a part of the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout on Thursday, Nov. 17, as smokers across the nation quit smoking for a day, taking an important step toward a healthier life and reducing their risk for cancer.
According to the ACS, about 40 million Americans still smoke cigarettes, and tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death. Studies have shown quitting smoking has immediate and long-term benefits at any age.
Quitting is hard, but St. Joe’s would like to offer you support to increase your chances of success. Come to the Event Center at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor on Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. to take the pledge to go tobacco-free – or pledge to support a friend, family member or co-worker for a day – for the Great American Smokeout on Thursday, Nov. 17. All pledges will be entered in drawings for prizes – everyone can participate.
In celebration of the Great American Smokeout, St. Joe’s Market Café will offer a $2.99 Cold Turkey sandwich lunch special on Thursday, Nov. 17.
