Title: ASTHOConnects: Ask the Experts Panel on JUULs in Schools
Time: Jul 29, 2019 02:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
E-cigarette use among youth and young adults is a growing epidemic. JUULs, a widely-available e-cigarette device sold by JUUL Labs, have become so popular that they account for nearly half of the e-cigarette market. The product’s appeal to youth is attributed to its high nicotine content, sleek shape, and assortment of flavors. In an attempt to reduce JUUL use among youth, increased prevention efforts have been implemented in school districts around the country.
Join ASTHO for a virtual session that will bring together expert panelists from Kansas public schools, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, and Stanford University to discuss strategies to reduce JUUL use in schools. This event, which will feature panelists speaking live on webcam, is a unique opportunity to connect with public health leaders on a pressing issue. The discussion will be centered around questions submitted by participants during registration, and any resources mentioned during the conversation will be made available by download post-meeting.
To help create an engaging, informative conversation, please submit at least one question when you register.
