The Vaping Epidemic: From Science to Public Policy

Vaping: Fact Versus Fiction

Thursday, April 2, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:15 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 evening panel will help separate fact from fiction about vaping, and discuss potential policy measures to help protect public health. Question to be addressed include — is vaping addictive? What are the health consequences of vaping? Are vaping bans the solution to stemming the youth epidemic? Panelists bring together perspectives ranging from public health policy, advocacy, and parenting, to science and medicine.


This evening event will be followed by a daytime program, The Youth Vaping Epidemic: From Science to Public Policy, convening on April 3, 2020 at the New York Academy of Sciences.  For more information and registration for the daytime program the following day, please visit: www.nyas.org/VapeSci20
