The Great American 'Smokeout'

The Great American 'Smokeout'
Written by Jennifer Soper, health and physical education teacher

In conjunction with our tobacco unit in health class, Dr. Bradley Block from E.N.T. and Allergy Associates of Garden City spoke with Garden City High School tenth graders about the Great American “Smokeout,” held each year on the third Thursday of November.

Dr. Block is board-certified and is a member of the American Medical Association and American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. He shared some of his surgery stories with students and educated them about the dangers of tobacco use.

Teachers discussed the importance of abstaining from all tobacco products, and students were taught how they can help others quit using tobacco too.  

The Health Education Department would like to thank Dr. Block for taking the time out of his schedule to share his expertise with the students of Garden City High School.
