Freedom from Smoking!

Wellness Programs has partnered with the American Lung Association and the Utah State Health Department to offer UVU students a variety of smoking cessation resources!

Who are these smoking cessation resources for?

These resources are designed for anyone who wants to quit smoking! The classes listed at the Utah County Health Department are available to anyone living in Utah County, including UVU students and employees.
