Event description

Description

This program is for School Nurses only.

There has been a sharp spike in vaping and the use of e-cigarettes by students. Statistics point to the danger of these devices with the public thinking that these products are safer than cigarettes. We want to make certain school nurses, who understand public health issues, have current information regarding these products. This educational program will discuss the prevalence of smoking and vaping in NYS, as well as information about hookah and other tobacco products. You will learn about the latest research on the products students are using, their impact on brain chemistry, addiction, their health and strategies to decrease this epidemic.
