One in four high school students have tried vaping in the past 30 days. Some believe that it’s a safe alternative to smoking, but is that true? Do we know enough about the risks? Hear the latest from a panel of experts and join the conversation about the health effects of vaping.
This community event includes a series of small presentations followed by a panel discussion featuring the team that published and cared for the first reported case of vaping-related lung injury in Canada.
