E-Cigs & Youth Podcast 
 

We are now witnessing the rise of a frightening trend. Among our nation’s youth, electronic cigarettes, also known as vaping or e-cigs, have become the most commonly used form of tobacco. According to the CDC, about 20% of high school students and about 5% of middle school students used electronic cigarettes in 2018. And these numbers are rapidly increasing. This month, I want to share one of our recent podcast episodes that talks more about this growing public health issue.
