Smoking cessation classes begin Jan. 9

CRYSTAL LAKE – The McHenry County Department of Health and Centegra Health System are partnering to offer a once-a-week quit-smoking class starting Jan. 9.

Instruction is by health department staff trained in the American Lung Association’s “Freedom from Smoking” program.

Classes will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center in Crystal Lake, 200 Congress Parkway.

A $25 course fee, payable at the first class, will be refunded for attendance at all seven sessions. Class members also will receive a free, three-day pass to the Health Bridge Fitness Center.
