Youth e-cigarette use remains at epidemic levels in the United States. New data from the 2020 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that one in five high school students (19.6%) and one in 20 middle school students (4.7%)—that’s nearly 3.6 million young people—reported using e-cigarettes. The scale of the problem is clear, and the science of addiction points to it getting worse, not better.
Join Amy Taylor, Chief of Community Engagement from the Truth Initiative, along with Jay Matthews, Community Impact Specialist at EVERFI, and Jessie Fox, Director of K12 Community Engagement at EVERFI, for a special release edWebinar on the topic of teen vaping. Educators will leave this session armed with actionable strategies to create opportunities for impactful conversations about the dangers of vaping and the addictive powers of nicotine.
Attendees will gain free access to Vaping: Know the truth, a prevention-forward digital learning experience that gives today’s students core knowledge around e-cigarettes and offers resources to help young people quit if they already vape, as well as a Red Ribbon Week Toolkit with additional free resources focused on student mental health and prevention.
This edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers, especially health, advisory, and PE teachers, school and district leaders, and counselors. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation
