Vaping: A new epidemic among youth
School, communities and families are taking action now. While there have been declines in tobacco use among youth, E-cig & Vape use among middle and high school students have been on the rise. The popularity of e-cigs & vapes among youth is of concern for health professionals, educators, and parents, in part because of the common misconception that these products are harmless and also because long-term consequences of e-cig/vape use are still not known. Keeping yourself current on accurate information is worthwhile so that you can be a trusted source of information for youth.
