Save the Date: ALA Freedom from Smoking Facilitator Training Series Begins Aug. 16

Sibley is offering the American Lung Association (ALA)’s Freedom from Smoking facilitator training series beginning Wednesday, Aug. 16. This eight-session series is free for Sibley employees and will take place over seven weeks. Participants will learn how to teach smoking cessation techniques, coordinate activities, guide group interaction and deal with challenges. The training prepares facilitators to conduct group clinics of eight to 16 people, and facilitators will receive a stipend for classes they lead after taking the training. Facilitators are expected to lead a group at least once a year.

To be eligible, facilitators must not have used tobacco for 12 months or longer. A background in health education or care is preferred, as is experience in similar Freedom from Smoking programs. The class will take place in Building A, Floor 2, Conference Room 5. The first session is Wednesday, Aug. 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information and to register, please contact smh-sibleycommunity@jhmi.edu.

Tomorrow from 4:30 a.m. to 6:15 a.m., the critical care and life support electrical circuits and equipment will be tested on generator power. During testing, each circuit will run on generator power for 30 minutes. Maintenance Supervisor Doug Evans will be available at x4068 for support.
