Overview

The rate of vaping among youth nearly tripled from 2010 to 2017. In 2018, Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), or e-cigarette, use increased 78% among high school students. Nationally, there have been 1,299 cases of vaping-related lung illness. In 2019, Missouri experienced 22 vaping-related lung illnesses and one death, with the majority occurring among patients between 15 and 24 years of age.

This webinar will address the epidemic of e-cigarette or vaping among youth and other populations. Attendees will learn about the new generation of ENDS and the risk factors associated with them. Information on prevention and treatment for those trying to quit also will be provided.
