The Youth Vaping Epidemic: From Science to Public Policy

Wednesday, February 10, 2021, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM EST

Webinar

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to capture public health official's attention, teenagers are still vaping in high numbers, putting their health at risk. 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 February 10, 2021 at the New York Academy of Sciences. For more information and registration for nighttime program, please visit: www.nyas.org/VapeFacts2021.
