Every year the American Cancer Society sponsors "The Great American Smokeout" day on the Thursday before Thanksgiving. This is a day that is specifically set aside to bring awareness about the dangers of smoking and to encourage people to quit smoking. In honor of the Great American Smokeout Day 2016, Athens Pulmonary initiated an office competition to see which team could create the best door designs on the patient rooms throughout our office. Each team was responsible for 3 doors and we were able to enjoy the amazing results throughout the month of November as these amazingly creative designs came to life. We had a great time participating and were able to stir up a great deal of attention for this worthy cause. Below are the pictures of the wonderful creations of the staff at Athens Pulmonary.
Athens Pulmonary has proudly partnered with Free to Breathe for each of the last five years to help raise money and awareness for lung cancer survival. Throughout the year, Athens Pulmonary hosts several events at our office in order to raise funds for Free to Breathe. Additionally, the highlight of our yearly participation with Free to Breathe is the annual 5K Run/Walk at Sandy Creek Park. Please visit the Free to Breathe website to learn more about how we are working together to help fight lung cancer.
