According to federal data, more than 5 million American young people are using e-cigarettes. The trend, with its negative health implications, is alarming to parents, public health officials, lawmakers and educators. Brookings Institution Research Analyst Diana Quintero has been exploring the rise of youth vaping through the lens of educational and public policy. In this webinar, she will discuss what she has learned about factors driving the rise of teen e-cigarette use and the health and disciplinary implications of vaping among young people. She will also share her findings about federal and state responses to the problem, as well as local approaches being taken by some schools and communities.
