National expert on e-cigarettes to share information about vaping with local parents, professionals

Aug 23, 2019

The use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices among local youth has grown dramatically in recent years. As part of its ongoing efforts to reduce tobacco use in Greater Cincinnati, Interact for Health is sponsoring two programs:

  • The Rise of E-cigarettes” is designed for local parents, caregivers and others working with middle-and high-school- aged youth. The free program will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3, at Interact for Health, 3805 Edwards Road, Suite 500, Cincinnati. A light dinner will be provided.
  • The Greater Cincinnati Tobacco Summit,” for professionals working on tobacco-related issues, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4, at Xavier University’s Cintas Center, 1624 Herald Ave., Cincinnati. There is no cost to attend, and lunch will be provided.

Brian King, Deputy Director for Research Translation at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office of Smoking and Health, is the keynote speaker for both programs. He will cover the following topics:

  • The changing tobacco product landscape.
  • How youth are using tobacco in new and different ways.
  • What adults can do.

The Sept. 4 tobacco summit will also feature the release of data from the first-ever Greater Cincinnati Adult Tobacco Survey and showcase local partnerships to reduce tobacco use.

Registration is required for both events. Please visit https://www.interactforhealth.org/reducing-tobacco-use/. For more information, contact Megan Folkerth at mfolkerth@interactforhealth.org or 513-458-6631.
