A convenient and timely alternative to in-person presentations, our online webinar series,  Vape Free, Breathe Free, covers the same topics in a series of five modules. Watch one or all five independently or as part of a group or class assignment

In-person Presentations

Vaping presents a serious threat to the health of our youth and young adults, with heightened concerns due to possible increased exposure to COVID-19 risks among vapers and smokers. It is therefore more important than ever to educate students, parents and staff about the risks associated with vaping and nicotine. CIC’s comprehensive vaping education program covers short and long-term risks, the impact of vaping on the adolescent brain, marketing strategies targeting youth, changing government policies, and a review of quit resources. The presentation can be delivered to students, parent groups, or faculty and staff, including:

  • An in-person PowerPoint presentation that can be tailored to audiences of different ages.
  • An interactive vaping display that provides opportunities for one-on-one discussions. They can be set up during lunch hours at school, at parents’ events and at health fairs.
