Week begins Nov. 13
The Texas Woman’s University Student Health Services
and the TWU Department of Health Studies are encouraging students
to quit — smoking, that is.
The City of Denton
has proclaimed the week of Nov. 13 as “TWU Tobacco-free
Week.” Activities at the university will include the
TWU Great American Smokeout from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday,
Nov. 14 on the Hubbard Oval, located off Administration Drive
on TWU’s Denton campus. In the event of rain, activities
will be held in the Student Union, located on the southwest
corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive. For more information,
call (940) 898-3833 or (940) 898-2863.
The TWU Great American
Smokeout is a tobacco-free health promotion fair featuring
free quit kits, “Haul Your Butt” bike races, chair
massages, information tables sponsored by community health
agencies and organizations, and a variety of health-related
games and entertainment. The event also will feature a “Pledge-to-Quit”
sign-up sheet for student smokers.
The Great American
Smokeout, now in its 30th year, encourages smokers to give
up cigarettes for the day, and, hopefully, for good. For more
