Come learn about this vitally important issue so you can hold more effective conversations with teens and pre-teens. The children in your life may not be vaping themselves but they know others who are. This is a very new behavior and much is not known. But what is known about the harm being caused is alarming!
Users of vape devices can easily become addicted to nicotine. The many chemicals vaped through the devices can cause irreparable harm to their lungs. Talking to teens and pre-teens is vitally important in prevention and cessation.
SEE ACTUAL VAPING DEVICES: At both events, an exhibit of vaping and other delivery devices used by youth will be set up on display. Take a look at what’s currently on the market and the most popular devices for users.
This project is funded through CHNA15 DoN funds from Lahey Hospital and Medical Center.
