This webinar will examine potential policy recommendations and promising practices that may help reduce and prevent youth vaping. Due to the recency of the spread of vaping, there has been insufficient time for research to confirm evidence-based programs that can specifically prevent vaping. However, based on knowledge of the risk factors for vaping, as well as of the evidence-based tobacco and marijuana prevention and cessation programs, several promising practices exist. This webinar is an update to the Preventing Youth Vaping Part II webinar that was offered on August 6, 2020.
