Healthy Lamoille Valley hosts regular coalition meetings the first Tuesday of each month to anyone interested in preventing and reducing youth substance use.
The meetings are held on Zoom.
The next meeting, “Youth Vaping: What Our Coalition Needs to Know and What We Can Do About It,” is Jan. 5, 6-7 p.m., and will feature guest presenter Marcella Bianco, program director for the CATCH My Breath youth e-cigarette prevention program.
The program will cover what e-cigarettes are and why they’re a concern for Vermont youth, how the vaping epidemic got out of hand so quickly, laws and policies around youth vaping, and the relationship between vaping and infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
Healthy Lamoille Valley will also launch the Tobacco Prevention Taskforce on Youth and Young Adult Vaping Prevention, look at the initiatives and campaigns to take on, and hear from local youth.
