RIT's Better Me Wellness Program shared an inspirational story about Charlie Velazquez who quit smoking last year. After having a health-related “wake up call,” Charlie requested assistance from the Better Me Wellness Program and the Quit for Life Program through Excellus. These programs put him on the path to a healthier lifestyle and gave him the support and resources he needed to succeed. You can read Charlie’s story from the PDF attachment below.
