Baystate Franklin Medical Center's six-week program, taught by Cheryl Ruf, Tobacco Treatment Specialist and Respiratory Therapist at BFMC, is designed to help you learn more about nicotine and the challenges faced by those who wish to quit tobacco use. Nicotine replacement therapy will be provided at a reduced rate for those who qualify.
