QuitSmart
Tue, 13 Jan 2015 16:00:00 +0000

G-54 Classroom Rose Administration

Categories: HR Learning and Development, Workshops and Seminars

QuitSmart is a nationally recognized smoking cessation program developed by Dr. Robert Shipley at Duke University. The philosophy of the QuitSmart system is that success in quitting depends on two things:

1) a firm personal decision to quit using tobacco
2) a willingness to try new ways of thinking and coping

The QuitSmart Program gives you the tools necessary to successfully stop smoking by presenting a wide variety of cognitive and behavioral coping methods in addition to the biological treatment of nicotine addiction using the nicotine fading method through a process called Brand Switching. Medication recommendations as well as a patented cigarette substitute are also used as part of the smoking cessation process.

QuitSmart Training will be offered in a 3-part format: Part I – Preparing to Quit (2 hours), Part II – Quit Date (1 hour), and Part III – a Maintenance Session (1 hour). It is expected that participants attend all three sessions to receive certification of completion.

Note: This 3-part course meets:

Part I – Tuesday, Jan. 13, 4 PM – 6 PM
Part II – Tuesday, Jan. 27, 4 PM – 5 PM
Part III – Thursday, Jan 29, 4 PM – 5 PM

Toby Klein
Fri, 19 Dec 2014 08:00:00 +0000

Presented by Aldridge Gardens at Aldridge Gardens

December 10, 2014 - January 29, 2015

Meet mixed-media artist Toby Klein and get a first glance at her new exhibit at Aldridge Gardens.

Like a kaleidoscope, Toby's contemporary art is created with a burst of color, symmetry of design and motion. Her goal is to intrigue each person by drawing the eye into the piece of art, while holding it there so they can see all of the intricate detail. In developing her style, she has always been intrigued by different and unusual pieces of art and has strived to do the same in her work. 

Toby's work is contemporary and ranges from different degrees of abstraction and experimental to representation. Her images both representational and non-objective show the use of color, design & techniques as seen through the artist's eyes.

Meet the artist Reception on December 10th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm
