Topic: E-Cigarettes and Vaping: What We Know and What We Don’t
Instructor: Judith S. Gordon, PhD
E-cigarette use has become an epidemic among adolescents and young adults in the United States. New information and research results are emerging on these products every day. There are many short-term health consequences related to vaping, but nothing is yet known about the long-term health effects.
