EVALI: The Tip of the Vaping-Related Injury Iceberg @ Clack Building 7, 1st Floor Conference Room
Jan 15 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Presenter: Molly Nace, MPH, CSTE Applied Epidemiology Fellow

Use of e-cigarettes, or vaping, has become a popular replacement for traditional smoking. Vaping devices can aerosolize anything from nicotine, to CBD oil, to marijuana. While big tobacco companies claim that vaping is a safer alternative to cigarettes, the practice has led to numerous health issues including popcorn lung, severe injury due to device explosions, and most recently, e-cigarette, or vaping, product use associated lung injury (EVALI). This presentation will explore the practice of vaping, its related health effects, especially the recent national EVALI outbreak, and outreach intended to decrease the craze.
