For smokers, quitting smoking is the most important step they can take, and must take, to protect their health!
The Lebanese American University (LAU) Pharm-D students organized a focus group for women who have been smoking for a time, under the guidance of Makhzoumi Foundation’s mentors.
They called them and convinced them to attend a closed session with health experts and discuss smoking cessation possibilities. Even though hundreds of women were contacted, only few attended, which shows that smoking cessation is clearly a difficult decision to make.
The focus session included explanations about the dangers of smoking through interactive learning, and ended with a clear message directed to smokers stating that we have the right to breath!
At the end, the Lebanese American University (LAU) Pharm-D students tested the blood sugar levels for the attendees.
