We are dedicated to reducing chronic diseases and preventing their costly toll. In January 2007, the Columbia City Council took a step toward improved health for everyone by making the city a smoke-free place to live.
Call our nurses at 573.874.7356. They'll talk to you about our program, which includes a free counseling session and a free box of patches. This program is free and available to all Boone County residents.
At $4.14 per pack, if you smoke one pack of cigarettes a day, that's over $125 a month. In one year, you've spent almost $1600 on cigarettes. That's enough to go on a vacation or buy a new TV! If you continue that "pack a day" habit for 25 years, you will spend over $38,000 buying cigarettes.
