Smokers urged to join
free cessation clinic

The Dumaguete City government is urging smokers to join the free smoking cessation clinic organized by the City Health Office, in line with the implementation of the smoke-free ordinance on September 1, a government press release said.

City Administrator William Ablong said the clinic was established to help Negrenses who want to quit smoking. However, the clinic and the cessation program are in place but nobody has signed up so far, he said.

The smoke-free ordinance declares public areas, including transportation and government-owned facilities around Dumaguete City as off-limits to smoking. Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria has also issued a memorandum circular that bans smoking in city government-owned buildings and their premises, the press release also said.

The search for the 2nd Journ.ph Best Information Officer Blogger contest of Smart Communications is ongoing in Regions 6, 7 and 8, a government press release said.
