Vaping Prevention: A Remote-Learning Curriculum

 
The Vaping Prevention: A Remote-Learning Curriculum addresses the health risks of using e-cigarettes/vapes, including JUUL and Puff Bar; the increased risk of severe COVID-19 infection for e-cigarette/vape users; and marketing tactics used by nicotine companies to target youth. We also include an accompanying student assignment. The entire new curriculum is on the Tobacco Prevention Toolkit.
