Vape Pens & Teens: What Educators Need to Know
Thu, January 26, 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM PST
Doors will open at 8:30 am and the presentation will begin promptly at 9:00 am. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
E-cigarettes, vape pens, e-hookah...whatever you call them, these products have grown in popularity among people of all ages and young people are no exception. In fact, use of e-cigarettes/vape pens tripled among middle and high school students from 2011 to 2013.
This training will provide an overview of e-cigarettes/vape pens, adolescent use, tobacco-free schools policies, prevention strategies, and resources. There will be time for attendees to practice communicating the information they learn with others. It is geared towards school administrators, teachers, counselors, and community-based organization folks who work with youth in school-based settings.
Please note that this is an extended version of the 2-hour presentation held on September 28, 2016.
