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 collaboration with Truth Initiative and their work with Kaiser Permanente - as part of its Thriving Schools initiative - and the American Heart Association. This course will be available for use on November 30th, 2020.
EVERFI's K-12 Resources Are Available at No Cost to Teachers, Schools, & Districts.
