Quit on The Great American Smokeout and Stay Quit with Monday

Monday Campaigns

On November 21, people from across the country will participate in this year’s Great American Smokeout, “Day 1” of their journey toward a smoke-free life. Deciding to quit is a major step forward, but research shows that it may take current smokers an average of 30 attempts before they successfully quit smoking for a year or more.

Middle-Aged Americans & Dementia Risk: Lots of Worry, Not Enough Proven Prevention

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Nearly half of Americans in their 50s and early 60s think they’re likely to develop dementia as they grow older, but only 5% of them have actually talked with a doctor about what they could do to reduce their risk, a new study finds.
