Healthy Suffolk: Learn to Be…Tobacco Free

                   Class in Hampton Bays

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Health Commissioner James Tomarken, MD, encourage residents who use tobacco to seek help in breaking their tobacco-nicotine addiction and to sign up for Suffolk County’s “Learn to Be …Tobacco Free” program.

“We are promoting good health to all residents in Suffolk County,” said County Executive Bellone. “For those who are addicted to tobacco or nicotine, we urge them to get the support they need to prevent illnesses that are caused by tobacco.”

“Breaking an addiction to nicotine can be very difficult,” said Dr. Tomarken. “Recent studies have shown that smokers who try to quit smoking using a combination of behavioral support and medicine  are three times more likely to be successful than those who try to stop smoking without support.”

The classes are free to Suffolk County residents, though there is a nominal fee for medication for medically eligible participants.  The class will be held:



Hampton Bays Library, 52 Ponquogue Avenue, Hampton Bays, NY

Tuesdays from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., June 16, 23, 30; July 14, 21, 28

Reunion: August 17, 2015 (Contact: 728-6241)
