CIS hosts “Smokeout” event, highlights Cessation Program


If you don’t know first hand, then you’ve no doubt heard, it’s hard to quit smoking. That’s why every year “The Great American Smokeout” is held around the world. It’s a day that encourages smokers and other tobacco users to put down the tobacco for a day.

Once again this year, the Cardiovascular Institute of the South was a big part of the big day, hosting events at all of its locations, including the ones in Baton Rouge, Prairieville, and Zachary on Thursday, November 21st.

The goal, as always, was to give those considering becoming non-smokers, an opportunity to learn how they can do it, if and when they’re ready. Toward that end the “Smoking is Nacho Friend” event provided information on CIS’ Smoking Cessation Program, including how to qualify and what’s involved. For more information on the program, just head to their website.

Cardiovascular Institute of the South was founded in 1983 by Dr. Craig Walker, who first established the company as a one-physician practice in Houma, Louisiana. Driven by a desire to serve and heal people in his community, Dr. Walker envisioned CIS as a leader in the development of new techniques and technologies in the treatment of both coronary and peripheral artery diseases.

Today, CIS continues to grow and expand to multiple locations striving to make the most advanced cardiovascular care accessible to a wide spectrum of communities across Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi. We believe that our unwavering dedication to the CIS mission of providing the highest quality cardiovascular care has truly been the cornerstone of this successful growth.
