On Campus Smoking Cessation Classes

Each semester, the Madison County Health Department offers classes on campus to help our employees quit.

Employees that attend a smoking cessation program (online or on campus) will have the tobacco surcharge waived upon completion. Attendance at meetings on campus (7) is mandatory to waive the tobacco surcharge. Missed meetings can be picked up in the next session or scheduled with the Health Department. 

Family members and dependents can participate in the on campus program if they are covered by EKU's health insurance plan. See all Tobacco Free Taskforce Resources
