Vaping: What it is and How Healthcare Providers and Communities Can Address the Epidemic
As the tobacco product marketplace evolves, new products are emerging that deliver nicotine to users in different ways. These products include e-cigarettes/vapes such as JUUL or Puff Bars. In the United States, vaping has quickly become a public health epidemic, but what exactly is vaping and what makes it so popular?

During this webinar we will discuss vaping/e-cigarettes, what these products look like and the ingredients found in e-liquids. We'll review the prevalence of use among adults and youth and how these products impact Hoosier health. At the end of the webinar, we'll share strategies and resources available to help people quit.
