Student Wellness Consultations
Any MIT student can meet with a Community Wellness health coach for up to three sessions of health and wellness coaching. A wellness coach can help you identify and plan your health goals—including quitting smoking—and provide support and accountability as you move toward those goals in a way that works best for you. Request a student wellness consultation: email@example.com
Members of the MIT Community are eligible for free telephone-based quit-smoking counseling sessions, and a free supply of tobacco treatment medication. For details on the program, visit Quitworks. For a referral, talk to your MIT Medical PCP, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
