Jordan Catholic School 4th grade teacher Karen Lavell reached out to Trinity to participate in their “Smoke Free That’s Me” program. Mrs. Lavell explained that this is a perfect time to teach students about the dangers of smoking as the Great American Smoke-out is this Thursday November 15th. Trinity will work with Mrs. Lavell’s 4th grade class from 1-2pm today.

Trinity Cancer Center reaches out to area elementary students to educate them in visual and interactive ways about the long-term dangers of smoking.  Smoke Free That’s Me is a program presented to 2nd and 4th graders by oncology-certified nurses.  Each presentation lasts about 50 minutes and includes an age-appropriate video, handout, and numerous interactive activities.  Educators are encouraged to call the Cancer Canter at (309) 779-5090 ext. 1 (nursing) or ext. 3 (Carolene) to schedule a visit.
