Description

According to the most recent tobacco use data, 27.7 percent of high school students used e-cigarettes and 31.2 percent used some sort of tobacco product in 2019. Youth e-cigarette use, now at epidemic levels, is a public health and community concern as highlighted in the 2016 Surgeon General report on e-cigarette use among youth and young adults. Clinicians throughout North Carolina and the US have been on the front lines of this issue. Attendees to this session will expand their knowledge around trends, best practices and resources to tackle this public health challenge. This program is open to all healthcare professionals, school-based personnel and nurses, addiction professionals, public health staff and others in the community interested in addressing this issue.
