The FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) announced the launch of the Vaping Prevention and Education Resource Center. The online resource center provides science-based, standards-mapped materials that teachers can use to help their students understand the dangers associated with vaping and nicotine addiction.
The new resource center features numerous age-appropriate, cross-curricular resources for teachers to promote learning and begin having open conversations with youth about vaping. This effort is an extension of FDA’s prior work with Scholastic, a collaboration that has recently ended. The materials previously developed through this collaboration can be found in the resource center.
Additionally, CTP developed materials for parents and teens. All content on the resource center is free, easy to navigate, and optimized for each audience.
The launch of the resource center illustrates FDA’s continued commitment to youth vaping prevention. CTP will be continuously updating the resource center with new materials, so check back often for the latest resources.
