Message from the Safe & Healthy Homewood Coalition
Posted by AnnaGrace Baldwin on 5/7/2020
The use of e-cigarette (vaping) products by middle and high school students has been a growing problem nationally. During these unprecedented times with COVID-19, there is a greater concern about vaping. The health effects for youth, especially the effects to their lung health, gives parents the perfect opportunity to talk about these risks. To help youth understand the risks of vaping, the Birmingham Youth Tobacco Prevention Program has created a free online educational program. For more information and to view the program, click here.
