PartnerSHIP 4 Health is sharing important resources.

If you have employees who have been thinking about quitting smoking, there’s no time like the present pandemic. With the novel coronavirus sweeping the globe, the science on quitting smoking offers welcome news for smokers who want to build up their defenses in case they contract COVID-19. Here’s a discounted opportunity.

The next Freedom From Smoking Facilitator Training is scheduled. As a reminder, the first three modules will be web-based.  Module 1 “Tobacco Basics” will take about 40 minutes to complete, Module 2 “How to Help People Quit” will take about 60 minutes to complete, and Module 3 “Freedom from Smoking Facilitator Training” will take about 3 hours to complete.  The live 2-hour web-based Facilitator Skill Builder Workshop conducted remotely via Skype for Business video webcam (or phone if webcam is unavailable) is scheduled for Tuesday, April 14 from 2-4 p.m.

You can have your partners register here:  https://action.lung.org/site/TR/Program/ALAUM_Upper_Midwest/932957793?pg=entry&fr_id=20707.  Note, the Freedom From Smoking Facilitator Training is listed as $400, however, we are able to offer this training for $100.  Please use the code “MNreg20” when you register to receive the discount.

Once you register, Heidi Larson will contact you with the directions to complete the three modules before the live 2-hour training on April 14.  Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
