Cooper-Clayton participant will soon be the leader

The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department (LFCHD) recently teamed with the Kentucky Center for Smoke Free Policy, the University of Kentucky College of Nursing and WUKY to produce a series,StoryCorps, to mark the tenth anniversary of Lexington’s no-smoking ordinance – the first to be passed in any Kentucky city.

Last week’s installment featured Community Health Equity and Education Team Leader and Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist Angela Brumley-Shelton interviewing Lexingtonian Karen McClain, who managed to quit smoking more than five years ago through one of the health department’s Cooper-Clayton to Stop Smoking classes.

McClain has now been trained as a Cooper-Clayton facilitator and will soon be leading a class in partnership with the LFCHD this summer.

In case you missed it, three new Cooper-Clayton classes start soon at three different locations in Lexington. Find out more details about those classes here.
