Quit Smoking, Treat Knees

MemorialCare is offering two free classes to Village residents. 

“Freedom from Smoking” virtual classes hosted by the MemorialCare Cancer Institute and led by certified American Lung Association instructors, aim to give smokers the tools and support they need to quit nicotine. Session 1 classes are Tuesdays from March 1 to April 12; Session 2 classes are Tuesdays from May 3 to June 14. Both sessions are from 5 to 6:30 p.m. New sessions start every other month. Register by contacting lung nurse navigator Sherri Hoag, M.S.N., R.N., O.C.N., at 949-452-7416.

“Advancements in Knee Replacement,” a Zoom session on Friday, April 8, from 12:30 to 1 p.m., features James B. Chen, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon who discusses advances in diagnosis and treatment options for chronic joint pain sufferers and the importance of having joint replacement surgery in the hospital. Wear and tear of the joints can cause significant pain and, when left untreated, can lead to diminished quality of life. Don’t let it hold you back! Register for this Zoom session at memorialcare.org/SBJointClass.


Unless otherwise stated, all meetings, events and amenities are for the use of Laguna Woods Village residents and their authorized guests only.
