Vaping Talk to Youth about the Risks

Considerable progress has been made in reducing cigarette smoking among youth. However, the tobacco product landscape continues to evolve to include a variety of tobacco products, including smoked, smokeless, and electronic products, such as e-cigarettes. According to CDC, since 2014, e-cigarettes have been the most commonly used tobacco product among US middle and high school students. As of October 8, 2019, 1,299 lung injury cases associated with the use of e-cigarette, or vaping, products have been reported to CDC from 49 states, the District of Columbia, and 1 U.S. territory. This Webinar will discuss the health risks of e-cigarettes and vaping, updates on the vaping-related illnesses, and what South Boston Health Center Youth Program is doing to keep its young patients from vaping.
