JEFFERSON CITY, MO (NOV. 03, 2016) – Do you smoke or have a loved one who does? If you are a smoker or have been in the past 15 years, your risk for developing lung cancer is much higher than those who do not smoke. According to the Centers for Disease Control, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, claiming more than 200,000 lives each year. Additionally, cigarette smoking is estimated to cause more than 480,000 deaths annually.

Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Hawthorn Bank Community Room, 3600 Amazonas Drive, Jefferson City, Mo.
