Healthy Acadia, in collaboration with WQDY 92.7/95.3 FM, WCRQ 102.9 FM and WSHD 93.3 FM, is hosting free virtual discussion sessions to explore vaping and associated health risks. “Facts and Myths about Vapes” will be offered once per month via Zoom through December. Teens, parents, caregivers, teachers and others who work or connect with youth are invited and encouraged to attend. The one-hour interactive presentation about e-cigarettes, commonly known as JUULs, is packed with information about the relatively new Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems, or ENDS, that have exploded onto the market and into the hands of teens and young adults.
The next workshop is scheduled for Thursday, April 22 at 6 p.m. There is no cost to attend a session and pre-registration is not required. Those who attend the full session will be entered to win a live prize drawing immediately following the discussion.
