Join the Alberta Health Services Healthy Schools and Population Health Promotion team for a virtual parent learning
session on the youth vaping epidemic. In this session, parents will learn about what vaping is, current vaping trends
among youth and the harms and risks associated with it. We’ll explore what legislation is in place at the local and
provincial level to combat youth vaping use and what you and your child’s school can do about it. Ideas on how to talk
to kids and help them quit, as well as where to go for more information will also be covered. Have your voice be heard
and your questions answered by an expert in the field.
