Today’s youth are facing a public health emergency that threatens to erase decades of progress to reduce teen smoking. Youth vaping, now at epidemic levels, has exploded in recent years: just last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced
new data showing nearly 1 in 3 middle and high school students now use one or more tobacco products.
This afternoon, I am hosting a Member Forum on the Youth Vaping Epidemic which will provide the opportunity to hear from those facing this crisis firsthand. Students and principals will share their experiences of the impact of youth vaping inside the classroom
and the efforts they have undertaken to combat the problem.
Please join me in this important next step in fighting the youth vaping epidemic. To RSVP, please contact Christian Lovell (firstname.lastname@example.org) in my office.
