Online: Up In Smoke (or Vape)- Health Consequences of Smoking, Vaping, and Air Quality on the Human Body
September 25, 2019 - January 1, 2020$15.00
E-cigarette use among youth and young adults has become a public health concern.
E-cigarettes are now the most commonly used tobacco product among youth, surpassing conventional cigarettes. Are e-cigarettes safer than conventional cigarettes? How exactly does an e-cigarette work? Is it legal for a teen to use an e-cigarette? Why would someone choose to vape rather than smoke a traditional cigarette? Smoking is now prohibited on the premises of a child care center in North Carolina and e-cigarettes have been added to the smoking restrictions for staff. Attend this training to distinguish between second and third hand smoke, their affects on air quality, describe how an e-cigarette works and the dangers of smoking e-cigarettes.
Participants must attend online course, read handouts, answer interactive questions and pass a post knowledge assessment with a score of 90% or higher (multiple attempts allowed).
