In continuation to our “To Vape or Not to Vape: That is the Question” chapter chat, we are excited to announce our latest chat on vaping myths and misconceptions. In this chat, we aim to understand the basics of vaping and e-cigarettes, recognize how prevalent vaping is among teens and pre-teens, recognize the influence of vape culture online, discuss possible techniques for helping teens quit vaping and demonstrate the Quitline referral process. This conversation will be led by Valerie Gribben, MD, FAAP.
