This session will focus on lung cancer and tobacco use. We will discuss the merits of quitting tobacco use, as well as what you need to know about lung cancer in a post-Corona world. There are significant positive effects of smoking cessation on the health of lung cancer patients: decreased risk of disease, increased survival time, decreased postoperative complications, increased efficacy of chemotherapy, decreased radiation therapy complications, and improved QOL. Join us to discuss.

BONUS: A Cape May County treatment specialist will be live on the call to answer any Quit Center-specific questions!

Travel & Transportation: America's 1st Seaside Resort
With Historic Cold Spring Village


When using horse and buggies to get around, without paved roads or bridges, or navigating ships that were faced with dangerous perils of their own, such as uncharted rocks or the ever-looming threat of pirates, not to mention the difficulties with the weather, transporting people and goods was cumbersome!

This afternoon meeting will be aimed towards the difficulties early Cape May settlers faced when travelling, prior to the introduction of modern roads and the automobile, the solutions and advancements that they helped to uncover, and the advancements of tourism in regards to Cape May, during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Join us on our Zoom meeting for a discussion of the development of tourism and the means of transportation that helped make Cape May America’s first seashore resort.

Backyard Birding in the Garden State
With the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey


Curious about your backyard visitors? The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey will show you some of the common birds found in your backyard!

South Jersey is a hotspot for migratory birds, and a dream for bird enthusiasts. With so many different species flying through, it can be hard to identify them all. Was that a White-throated Sparrow that just flew by? Or was it a Song Sparrow? Was that an American Crow or a Common Grackle? A Gray Catbird or a White-breasted Nuthatch?

Join us with the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ to learn all about the birds in your backyard, how to ID them, what makes them unique, and how we can protect them.
