Vaping has been labeled a teen epidemic by the FDA and is of great concern to families in our Elmbrook community and across the nation. To respond to the increased vaping activity by our students, we have partnered with experts at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin; Your Choice To Live, Inc; and the American Lung Association to bring you the first in a series of educational videos or public service announcements regarding vaping. This first video, What is Vaping?, addresses vaping in an effort to better educate parents so that you can begin a dialogue with your child.
In October, we will have an in-depth look at the Health Hazards of Vaping, followed by Consequences of Teen Vaping in November.
Following the video series in December, the Elmbrook Parent Network will host an informational session with local vaping expert, Dr. Barbara Calkins of Children's Hospital, at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts. Families and students can reserve their seats for this important program at: https://pn-vapingepidemic.eventbrite.com.
