Community Conversation on Vaping

On Monday, November 18th, Stearns Country Public Health will present information on vaping at 7:00 PM in the Sauk Centre School Auditorium.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that almost 10% of 8th graders have vaped with in the last 30 days.  At the 12th grade level, that rate has doubled to 16+% for boys.  Students report that 66% of the vape due mostly to the flavorings.  As a result, teen vapers are twice as likely as non-vapers to become cigarette smokers, too.

This will be an opportunity for parents, students, and community members to learn about the dangers of vaping and prevention strategies.
