LYL2023 ARTMark your calendar for Love Your Lung's return to campus on November 16!

Join UAB Employee Wellness for the annual lung health event on Thursday, November 16, 7 to 9 a.m., in the UAB Hospital North Pavilion 2nd Floor Atrium. UAB employees, students and members of the community are invited to stop by and snap a picture with the 17-foot Inflatable Lungs, win prizes on the Wheel of Wellness, and learn more about lung health and resources available to those looking to quit.

Love Your Lungs is held each November in recognition of Great American Smokeout, the American Cancer Society’s annual event encouraging tobacco users to make the third Thursday in November the day they start their journey toward a healthier, smoke-free life.

Explore the resources below to learn more about the risks of cigarette, vape and tobacco use, as well as the tools and resources available to help support you in a healthier lifestyle.

Here are few ways to get started in your tobacco-free journey:

  1. Register for Tobacco Cessation Counseling through the UAB Employee Assistance and Counseling Center.
  2. Use the Alabama Tobacco Quitline for free telephone and online tobacco cessation resources, such as coaching, personalized support and even free nicotine replacement therapy for eligible participants.
  3. Learn more about Smoking Cessation and how you or a loved one may benefit from quitting.
