    Bassett Healthcare Network

    November 9, 2018

    Bassett Healthcare Network has joined the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout again this November to offer support and education to those seeking a “smoke free” life. Quitting smoking isn't easy, but with the right tools and a goal in mind, it can be easier. Take the first step with us, and others throughout America, and set a date to quit with us on Nov. 15! On this day, some of our Bassett locations across the network will have Great American Smokeout events at each location that will include tips to quit, smoking cessation tools and handouts, free giveaways, raffles and more! Sign a pledge at any of our Oneonta locations and take a pledge to quit for the day! Each pledge will be entered to win a raffle!
