Vaping: Know the truth
Student Learning Objectives:
Youth e-cigarette use remains at an epidemic level. This prevention-forward digital learning experience gives today’s students core knowledge around the dangers associated with using e-cigarettes and offers resources to help young people quit if they already vape. This course is particularly timely given that the COVID-19 pandemic has many schools seeking digital resources for students learning remotely and a recent study showing that young people who have vaped may be more likely to test positive for coronavirus.
Vaping: Know the truth is offered to K12 schools at no cost thanks to our work with Truth Initiative and Kaiser Permanente, in collaboration with the American Heart Association. This course was recently honored as a finalist in the Engage for Good Halo Awards in the categories of Health and Education.
EVERFI's K-12 Resources Are Available at No Cost to Teachers, Schools, & Districts.
