E-cigarettes are being used in record numbers with nearly 2 in 5 students in 12th grade reporting past year vaping. Education about the dangers of e-cigarette use among youth is therefore of utmost importance to counter marketing and peer pressure experienced in schools.
Weill Cornell Medicine Meyer Cancer Center (MCC) Office of Community Outreach and Engagement is hosting a youth roundtable as part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month and invites adolescents and interested community members to join.
Facilitating the discussion will be a panel of six youth ambassadors from diverse backgrounds. The roundtable will be moderated by Dr. Alia Komsany (PhD), Youth Program Lead at the MCC Office of Community Outreach and Engagement and public health professional, Deidre Scully (MPH), Director of NYC Smoke-Free.
