Tweens, Teens and Vaping: A Dangerous Addiction

While Massachusetts has imposed a temporary ban on selling vaping products, tweens and teens throughout the country have been using e-cigarettes and getting hooked on vaping.

The underground market still provides these dangerous products to youth in Massachusetts.

Tracy Rose-Tynes, MS, BSN, RN, manager of School Health Services in Cambridge, Mass., has extensively researched the impact of e-cigarette use on tweens and teens. She will provide the facts, the most current research and the answers about why this is such a dangerous addiction. Find out -- once armed with this knowledge -- what you can do to stop the trajectory of this deadly health epidemic.

Register

“Educating youth and adults around the issues of vaping has become my passion, explains Ms. Rose-Tynes, "and with every presentation, I hope to change the trajectory of use and the illnesses associated with e-cigarette use.”
