Description

Cigarette smoking has declined among middle and high school students for years. But now, e-cigarette sales are rising, with young people using them at epidemic rates. Public health officials are concerned about the impact -- including exposure to addictive nicotine.

Side Effects Public Media is following this topic. In April, we held listening sessions in Kokomo and Terre Haute to hear comments and questions. We invite you to share your thoughts, comments and questions on this important and evolving topic by emailing health@wfyi.org. To report what we have learned, you are invited to a live streamed panel conversation on June 4th. A panel of experts will address comments and answer questions. Please register here to receive the link a day beforehand. Our moderator will be Side Effects Public Media reporter, Araceli Gomez-Aldana.

Panelists include:

Leslie Hulvershorn, MD, IU School of Medicine and Riley Hospital at IU Health

Dr. Dana Stewart, Pediatrician, Meadows Medical Center

Olivia Teague, Indiana State University Student

Deb Robarge, RN, Executive Director, Indiana Association of School Nurses
