FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the first Surgeon General’s Report on smoking and health, Northside Hospital has launched a new smoking cessation program to help smokers kick the tobacco habit.

The seven-week sessions will use a combination of in-person classes and webinar formats to allow group discussion and interaction from the convenience of home.

All classes are facilitated by trained Northside Hospital staff.

Afternoon and evening classes are available in Atlanta and Forsyth County. Upcoming sessions begin March 18, May 13, July 8, Sept. 9 and Nov. 11.
