About This Event

Vaping devices are the leading tobacco product used by youth 18 and under. Over 20% of high school students say they’ve vaped in the last month, compared to only 7.8% stating they’ve smoked a cigarette in the last month. Even though the legal age for tobacco is now 21, youth share that it’s easily accessible for them. Through this presentation, you will learn the dangers of vaping, how it is marketed to youth, how easily accessible it is to them, and how they try and hide their usage.

•learn the dangers, marketing tactics, and accessibility of vaping to youth;

By reducing stigma, we can create an environment that offers hope and acceptance to those who currently suffer in silence.
