VALDOSTA -- The South Health District will participate on May 28 in the World Health Organization's World No Tobacco Day 2005, the only event observed on a global scale to reduce tobacco dependence.
This year's theme, "Be Kind to Your Body and Your World -- Choose to Be Tobacco-Free," encourages people to kick the tobacco habit and protect the world from the ill effects of tobacco use.
This year the South Health District will host a community carnival in honor of World No Tobacco Day, and encourage residents to call the toll-free Georgia Tobacco Quit Line at 1-877-270-STOP or 1-877-2NO-FUME. The carnival, for adults and youth, will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Payton Park.
The Georgia Tobacco Quit Line is available to anyone in Georgia 13 years of age or older. Trained counselors staff the quit line and offer individual programs tailored to the caller's needs. The quit line is open from 8 a.m. to midnight daily.
