jungle65 - Quincy Mayor, Police & Fire Chiefs disagree over proposed budget cuts - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJour
The Mayor needs to look no farther than the aldermen's healthcare to save money,no one (working 2-3 hours a week should be given health insurance! They already get paid, also I'm sure that Central services could use some trimming to save money, no one wants or likes people being put out of work but I would rather have the QPD, QFD at full strength than have extra city workers that are really…

That's the wrong headline. He didn't keep it a secret, OBAMA LIED to the American people about it. When Obama began his second term in 2013, he sang a different tune. He emphasized that Iran was more than a year away from a nuclear bomb, without mentioning that his intelligence community believed it was only two to three months away from making enough fuel for one, The right headline:…

Mellon quote must be mentioned elsewhere. Nor any mention of a LaHood relative working in Schock's office, but I'll make note of it as a FYI. Family seems to have a lot of members at the trough. According to legistorm.com & congressional-staff.insidegov.com that LaHood pulled down $39,375.00 from taxpayers in last 3 months of 2014 working for Schock. Another LaHood is Regional Deputy…

Quincy Medical Group launches new smoking cessation course

2 years, 3 months ago by Denise Donley

Starting on January 8, 2013, QMG will offer eight-sessions on Tuesday evenings from 5 pm to 6:30 pm

At Quincy Medical Group, we understand the positive outcomes of quitting smoking months and even years after a person commits to quitting. We also understand the difficulties faced during the road to becoming free of tobacco. This is why Quincy Medical Group has partnered with the American Lung Association to offer Freedom From Smoking, a tobacco cessation program.

“Smoking and tobacco use is more than a habit, it is an addiction, and one that can be hard to overcome,” said Loretta Musholt RN, Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitator.

Starting on January 8, 2013, Quincy Medical Group will offer the eight-session program on Tuesday evenings from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. This program will provide targeted tobacco cessation classes led by Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitators, along with individual counseling, peer support and tobacco replacement products. Freedom from Smoking is based on a five step platform that prepares individuals to quit and provides resources that are scientifically proven to help them stay tobacco free.

“Freedom From Smoking is a program I am proud to be a part of because it not only gives you the resources to quit, but it also provides the guidance to make sure you beat the habit for life,” said Ashlyn Myers, RD, LDN, Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitator.

Research indicates dramatic improvements in the body minutes to years after quitting smoking, including improved heart and lung function, and a substantial decrease in the risk of stroke and heart attack.

In order to ensure individual support and success, the class is limited to ten participants. Please call 217- 222-6550, ext. 3117 for more information or to reserve your spot in Freedom From Smoking.
