Smoking Cessation 

According to the American Heart Association, cigarette smoking is the most important preventable cause of premature death in the United States. Cigarette smokers have a higher risk of developing chronic disorders such as:

  • Coronary heart disease which can lead to heart attack
  • Lung problems such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Several types of cancer

If you’re ready to begin the process of quitting smoking, help is available. The Yuma County Public Health Services District and Yuma Regional Medical Center have partnered to develop a free, one-hour class that offers the expertise and support you need to learn how to quit smoking for good. 

Classes are held the first Tuesday of every month at 4:00 p.m. We invite you to take the first step on your path to a healthier lifestyle by learning more about our one-hour Smoking Cessation Class and then by registering to attend one by calling 928-336-3958.
