After struggling for two years to quit smoking and then having success, Mindi Anderson took a suggestion that she teach classes on tobacco cessation. She became certified through the American Lung Association and taught classes through San Joaquin Public Health at various local hospitals.
The class later went on hiatus when she had to leave the area. Anderson recently came back and will be starting classes again next month. She took some time on a recent morning to talk about the challenge of quitting smoking and the class she offers.
