PNI & Quit Smoking Programs at Grace Cottage Hospital

Grace Cottage Hospital will host a psycho-neuro-immunology (PNI) workshop on six Wednesdays, 6:30-8 p.m. beginning March 3.

Come and learn how to tap in to the healing power of your own mind through lectures, movement arts, and discussion.

PNI, also known as the "mind-body connection," explores the interactions between behavior and the nervous and immune systems, and how these interactions affect health and prevent illness.

The cost is $60 for the six-week series. The classes will be held in the Grace Cottage Community Wellness Center's Holt Conference Room. To register, call 365-3649.

GCH will host "Your Quit. Your Way," a free six-week tobacco cessation class, on six Mondays, March 1 to April 5, from 5-6:30 p.m., in the hospital's Community Wellness Center, 133 Grafton Road (Route 35), in Townshend.

Those who have tried to quit but are still smoking are particularly encouraged to enroll in this program. Free nicotine replacement products are available for any Vermont resident enrolled in this program.

Call the Grace Cottage Wellness Program, 365-3649, to register or for more information.

A free "Tobacco-Free Support Group" meets weekly at Grace Cottage on Thursday evenings, 5-6 p.m., in the Community Wellness Center. The weekly meetings are informal and relaxed, and all are welcome, whether they've quit or not. For information about the support group call 365-7357 ext. 182.
