MUNalum 101: Smoking Science and Quitting Myths
Tuesday, Jan. 11, 1-2 p.m.
Although many are aware of the dangers of smoking, they often struggle to quit.
Join Dr. Leslie Phillips (B.Sc.(Pharmacy)’91), a professor at the School of Pharmacy who also operates the Quit Smoking and Vaping Clinic, as she explains how nicotine addiction and erroneous beliefs about quitting can make it challenging for smokers to quit.
“Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in Canada,” said Dr. Phillips. “Understanding how nicotine impacts the brain and correcting misconceptions about how to manage it can better prepare smokers for a successful quit journey.”
