UC ingot   The Great American Smokeout will be held on Nov. 16 to encourage tobacco users to quit and even reduce their use on this day. The American Cancer Society shares that tobacco use is still the number one cause of preventable disease and premature death. Events will be held at various UC locations to support the national event: 

  • UC Blue Ash Tobacco Free Campus Task Force will have a table to educate faculty, staff and students on the dangers of tobacco products as well as provide resources for those who wish to quit. Everyone who makes the pledge to become/remain tobacco-free will also receive a free sandwich while they last. This will be in Muntz Commons from 12:30-1:50 p.m.
  • Main campus is hosting a cook-out and informational event as a collaboration between the Student Wellness Center, Human Resources, Colleges Against Cancer and the American Cancer Society. The event will be held on McMicken Commons from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. with free lunch, quit kits and more. 

  • The Tobacco Free T-Rex, assisted by Human Resources, will be traveling on Medical campus between 10-11 a.m. with quit kits and information on cessation resources.
