Living Tobacco Free series offered by Center for Healthy Living
June 23, 2014
The Center for Healthy Living is taking registrations now for its Living Tobacco Free series. Program participants will meet from noon to 12:50 p.m. each Wednesday July 9 through Aug. 13.
Participants will learn tips and techniques to prepare them to stop using tobacco. The center's health coaches will lead the series, placing special focus on:
* Changing behavior.
* Overcoming withdrawal and cravings.
* Coping with stress.
* Managing weight.
* Preventing relapses.
Everyone who successfully completes the series will be eligible for a waiver of the tobacco-user additional premium on their Purdue medical plan. The waiver will apply to all Purdue pay the participant receives in 2014, beginning Oct. 1.
The series is open at no charge to all benefits-eligible Purdue employees, including those who don't participate in a Purdue medical plan. Spouses and same-sex domestic partners who are covered by a Purdue medical plan are also eligible to join the program.
To register, call Millie Fenneman, practice administrator, at 49-45505 by July 7.
