Youth e-cigarette use remains at epidemic levels in the United States. Data from the 2022 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that one in seven high school students (14.1%) and one in 30 middle school students (3.3%)—that’s an estimated 2.55 million young people—reported using e-cigarettes.

Join Amy Taylor, Chief of Community Engagement from the Truth Initiative, along with Rachael Perez, Community Prevention Coordinator at Johnson County Mental Health Center, and Matthew Johnson, Director of Athletics and Activities at Olathe Public Schools (KS), for a special release edWeb podcast on the topic of teen vaping. Educators leave this session armed with actionable strategies to create opportunities for impactful conversations about the dangers of vaping and the addictive powers of nicotine.

Listeners gain free access to Vaping: Know the truth, a prevention-forward digital learning experience that gives today’s students core knowledge around e-cigarettes and offers resources to help young people quit if they already vape, as well as a Red Ribbon Week Toolkit with additional free resources focused on student mental health and prevention.

This edWeb podcast is of interest to middle and high school teachers and school and district leaders.
