Learn about the dangers of vaping and what’s being done to address the problem at a town hall meeting on Thursday, May 12.

Hosted by the Department of School Climate and Discipline’s Kimberly Young, the discussion covers the facts about vaping and the resources available to students and families.

Panelists include Lori Alhadeff, school board member, Dr. Barry Hummel, Jr., CEO of the QuitDoc Foundation, and representatives from the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Florida Department of Health in Broward, and Memorial Healthcare System.

“We want to start changing the perception that vaping is safer than cigarettes,” said Alhadeff. “We have a panel with extensive experience on the topic, and they will be covering a lot of important information with the audience.”

They plan to educate the public about Tobacco 21, the consequences of vaping, how harmful it is to the developing brain, how big tobacco companies target youth, and how easy it is to buy vapes over the mail.

The Town Hall is set for Thursday, May 12, 2022, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at J.P. Taravella High School. Attendees can register and submit questions for the panelists here.  

J.P. Taravella is located at 10600 Riverside Drive in Coral Springs.
