The UFT in partnership with the NYC Department of Health offers a smoking cessation program for our UFT members and staff. You will get confidential assistance on how to quit smoking.
If you are eligible*, we will provide you with nicotine medications (patch, gum, lozenges) at no charge.
*You may not be eligible if you have had a heart attack in the past two weeks, have high blood pressure not controlled by medication, have an irregular heartbeat, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
You must contact our Smoking Cessation hotline to make an appointment to get your nicotine medications. We are here Monday to Friday, 10 a.m.to 6 p.m. during the school year (for summer hours, please call).
For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call the UFT Smoking Cessation Hotline at 212-598-9287.
