The Youth Vaping Epidemic: From Science to Public Policy

The Youth Vaping Epidemic: From Science to Public Policy

Friday, April 3, 2020, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

Teenagers are vaping in record numbers, while vaping-associated lung injuries and deaths continue to rise. This youth vaping epidemic highlights the urgent need to understand the science of nicotine addiction, in particular with regard to the developing brain, and the potential long term health effects of compounds found in vapes. This symposium will convene experts from academic, clinical, public health, and policy communities to discuss new approaches for prevention — with a focus on emerging science to support evidence-based policy recommendations.


There will be an evening program titled, Vaping: Fact versus Fiction, convening on April 2, 2020 at the New York Academy of Sciences. For more information and registration for the previous day's nighttime program, please visit: www.nyas.org/VapeFacts2020.
