Whidbey General Hospital smokes out tobacco


Every year during the Great American Smokeout, the American Cancer Society asks those who use tobacco to consider stopping for one day.

This year’s Smokeout is Thursday, Nov. 15. Whidbey General Hospital will observe the Smokeout with an information table in the hospital lobby from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with brochures, hands-on demonstrations and information on free resources for becoming tobacco-free.

Katherine Riddle, certified tobacco treatment specialist and respiratory therapist, will answer questions and discuss the many available tools for quitting. Anyone thinking of becoming tobacco-free is asked to attend.

Call Riddle to learn more at 360-678-7656, ext. 2130 or 321-7656, ext. 2130.
