Vaping 101 for Parents and Caretakers: FCD Prevention Works with Stanford Medicine

Register for the webinar here. 

Vaping in its many forms is a drug use practice that poses physical, emotional, and social health risks to young people. The first step to preventing teen vaping is to educate ourselves and have health-based conversations with teens.

Please join co-presenters Stacey Wisniewski, a Prevention Specialist with FCD Prevention Works, and Dr. Bonnie Halpern-Felsher, Professor, Founder, and Executive Director of the Stanford Tobacco Prevention Toolkit (tobaccopreventiontoolkit.stanford.edu), as they introduce you to the facts about vaping.

This 90-minute webinar, specifically tailored for parents and caretakers, will interactively explore

  • What vaping is
  • How much vaping occurs among teens compared to use trends for other drugs
  • What vaping does to the young body and mind
  • What addiction to vaping looks like
  • How to have a conversation about vaping with teens   
  • How parents and caretakers can prevent vaping before it starts, effectively identify and intervene on warning signs of use, and/or support children and teens who want to quit vaping

There will be plenty of time for questions! The workshop will show you how to use the data-informed Stanford Tobacco Prevention Toolkit, a resource for educating teens about vaping and other forms of nicotine use. Email schools@fcd.org for more information.
