Vaping: Fact Versus Fiction
Wednesday, February 10, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST
The New York Academy of Sciences
While our attention is focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, young people are still vaping in record numbers.
What exactly is vaping and what is in a vape? Do all vaping products contain nicotine? Is it safe? How addictive is it, really? Are you at risk of serious COVID-19 from vaping?
You’ve probably asked at least some of these questions without getting accurate answers. You may have read a few articles and listened to the newsreel, but you may have ended up feeling less informed. Indeed, there’s a lot of inaccurate information surrounding vaping, and it’s made it difficult for the public to grasp the facts.
If you’re a parent, teacher, school nurse, student, or concerned friend who can’t tell what’s actually true about this phenomenon, then join us for an evening event where we bring together experts to help separate fact from fiction tell you what you really need to know.
There will be a virtual daytime program titled, The Youth Vaping Epidemic: From Science to Public Policy, convening on February 10, 2021. For more information and registration for nighttime program, please visit: www.nyas.org/VapeSci2021.
