    Health Alert: Vaping-Associated Pulmonary Injury

  • Published on April 25, 2019

     "The best approach to prevention seems to be fair education. That is, education on vaping that isn't judgmental, that doesn't gloss over the allure and doesn't simply tell young people they are wrong. It seems like we are moving away from the 'Just Say No' message that failed our society with other substance abuse."
