July 9 WHN Event: The healthcare implications of the vaping epidemic

While Wisconsin and other states have made progress snuffing out cigarette smoking, youth vaping is on the rise. One in five high school students regularly used e-cigarettes in 2018, a more than 150 percent jump from four years prior. That’s according to a recent report from the Department of Health Services, who considers the rise an epidemic. What led to this rise? And what are its overall health implications? What’s being done to address the issue? A Wisconsin Health News panel on July 9 in Madison will tackle these questions and more.

 Panelists:

  • Jeanne Ayers, Public Health Division Administrator, Department of Health Services
  • Sen. Andre Jacque, R-DePere
  • Dr. James Meyer, Pediatrician, Marshfield Clinic Health System
  • Dona Wininsky, Director of advocacy, grassroots and patient engagement, American Lung Association of Wisconsin
