Description

E-Cigs, JUUL & the Youth Epidemic: What Parents and Teachers Should Know

Some of the common youth misconceptions surrounding e-cigarettes are:

It’s just flavoring.”
It’s just water vapor.”
My vape says it’s nicotine-free. There’s no way I’ll become addicted.”
I don’t have an addictive personality – I won’t get hooked on vapes.”
Nicotine isn’t that bad for me.”
Just because I vape doesn’t mean I’m going to smoke cigarettes.”

Join Sarah Cosgrove, Respiratory Therapist & Tobacco Treatment Specialist of Rutland Regional Medical Center to discuss why these dangerous misconceptions lead young adults to believe vaping is harmless and why sharing the facts is an important first step in addressing youth vaping. 

Parents, teachers, health professionals, community leaders and other youth advocates will learn current initiatives taking place, along with practical suggestions that will have a positive impact for our county’s youth population. Updates will be given with regard to the recent illnesses linked to these vaping products, and what is being done locally and nationally to address these serious concerns.

Refreshments will be available.
