As the Mill Valley City Council took steps this week to ban the sale of flavored tobacco products and prohibit the sale of tobacco products at pharmacies, an expert on nicotine addiction is set to speak at the Outdoor Art Club on Oct. 1 in an event open to the public via Zoom.
NicoTeen: Curbing the Youth Nicotine Vaping Epidemic, features Dr. Jodi Prochaska, a Stanford University professor of medicine who directs Stanford’s masters’ program in Community Health and Prevention Research. She’ll focus on the fact that the use of e-cigarettes has increased a staggering 900% in recent years, and many of these new users are teens.
Prochaska will talk about the harms of nicotine vaping to young people, local measures being taken to address the teen vaping epidemic and treatment options.
This event will be hosted on Zoom. GO HERE TO REGISTER.
