Dr. Frank White gave a presentation on the health risks and dangers associated with Vaping at the Mid-winter NESC Conference held on January 20, 2020. His presentation is informative and thoroughly researched, citing the most up-to-data on the health risks associated with vaping. The data presented in his PowerPoint was taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I strongly urge parents, guardians, and community members to take the time to review this presentation as part of our on-going community outreach program designed to put an end to underage vaping.

What is Keep Connected?
Healthy, strong family relationships are foundational to young people’s growth, learning, and well-being. These relationships build strong social and emotional strengths that kids use throughout their lives.
But great family relationships don’t just happen.
Keep Connected offers all kinds of families—and organizations that support them—ideas, activities, and experiences to help build strong family relationships. Our goal is to strengthen family relationships to help kids be and become their best selves.
