UW-Eau Claire Offers Nicotine Patches

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is doing it's part to try to help students quit smoking.

Nicotine patches are now available to students who would like to kick the habit, but have had trouble doing so in the past.

The patches are available for students who smoke at least a half a pack a day, or use chewing tobacco daily.

The program began this semester and will run through the semester's end.

Dr. Joanne Mellema, with the school's health center, says the patches would typically cost students anywhere from thirty-five to fifty dollars.

Students who speak with a campus physician can get the patches for free.

The service is funded by the Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention at the University of Wisconsin Medical School.
