In cooperation with the Scarborough Public Schools, MaineHealth is pleased to bring the public an informational class on the youth epidemic of e-cigarettes (also known as JUUL and vaping).

Join a panel of Maine experts for an interactive discussion on vaping and electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).

You will also have an opportunity to see some of the most common devices, receive tips from a local high school substance abuse counselor on how to talk to teens about vaping and get the latest information on Maine law regarding ENDS and usage among Maine teens. Join us to get your questions answered so you can be better prepared to talk to the teens in your life.
