Current data shows that vape has tripled among both middle and high school students from 2015 to 2019 (Middle School (MS): from 5% in 2015 to 15% in 2019, High School (HS): from 9% in 2015 to 32% in 2019). 1 in 3 Louisiana high school students currently vape. To address this skyrocketing crisis, The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living and Comprehensive Care Center of SW LA are collaborating to create “Vaping Education Boot Camp.”

This event will deliver information about smoking and vaping health concerns, cessation information, and other resources that parents, and others, can utilize to help support the youth and young people in their lives.

We are looking for mental health service providers, youth service providers, or others who work with
youth and young adults who might be interested in attending to share the resources they have.
