Vaping

Outreach recognizes the increase in teen and middle school use of e-cigarettes and the inherent danger to their physical health.

We have added a module in our Choices class, available the 3rd Saturday of each month, to educate both kids and parents about vaping.

There are local telephone-based support providers; parents can start with the national quitline number 1-800-QUIT-NOW (800-784-8669), which is operated by the National Cancer Institute, to be guided to a community-based quitline in your own neighborhood.
