Let’s Clear the Smoke – Get the Facts About Vaping

November 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:15 pm

Marshfield Area Parent Network is pleased to host two distinguished speakers.  One expert will focus on the aggressive marketing techniques employed to target youth to vape.  The second expert, from the field of adolescent medicine, will discuss the physical effects of vaping, potential addiction issues for the future and answer any questions audience members might have.  Join the Marshfield Clinic Health System and Marshfield Area Coalition for Youth (MACY) in collaboration with Unified School District of Marshfield and Columbus Catholic Schools from 5:30 – 7:15pm on Monday, November 19, at Marshfield High School Theatre, 1401 E. Becker Rd.  Marshfield.

Mitch Zellner, Director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, shared in a recent television interview “E-cigarettes are now the most commonly used tobacco product among young people in the United States,” adding, “we need to get the word out about the dangers of e-cigarette use among adolescents”.  November is home to the Great American Smokeout, an annual event hosted by the American Cancer Society.  While great gains have been made to decrease cigarette smoking in America, it is disturbing that a new generation of youth is engaging in vaping which contains high levels of nicotine. So, come join us Monday, September 19th to learn more about this troubling public health issue.

Enjoy free drinks and appetizers.
