TWU Tobacco-free Week begins Nov. 13


DENTON — 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 information, visit the American Cancer Society’s Web site at www.cancer.org.
