Webinar presented by Nuestras Voces and ASPIRE Networks
E-cigarettes are very popular with young people and since 2014, these commercial tobacco products have been the most commonly used among youth. In 2020, about 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students reported currently used e-cigarettes. Hispanic and Asian American youth are increasingly at risk for becoming users of electronic vapor products. In this webinar, participants will hear about community-based efforts engaging youth from diverse populations, to prevent and reduce the use of e-cigs/vaping among their peers.
