The Great American Smokeout

In conjunction with the tobacco unit in health class, Dr. Bradley Block (second from left) from E.N.T. and Allergy Associates of Garden City spoke with the 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 the 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.
