Come learn about this vitally important issue so you can hold more effective conversations with your children. The kids in your life may not be vaping themselves but they know others who are. This is a relatively new behavior and much is not known. But what is known about the harm being caused is alarming. To date, there have been 121 vaping-related injuries in Massachusetts alone, sadly including one vaping-related death in our state.  Users of vape devices can easily become addicted to nicotine. The many chemicals vaped through the devices can cause irreparable harm to their lungs. Talking to teens and pre-teens is vitally important in prevention and cessation.  Come see actual devices and learn from an expert!
Presented by Dr. Eden Evins, the founder and director of the Center for Addiction Medicine at Mass General Hospital and a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.  Learn more about Dr. Evins’ impressive background and her expertise at the registration site.
