Yarmouth Schools will be hosting a community presentation on tobacco and vaping by Hawa Shir, Community Health Promotion Specialist from Portland Public Health. Hawa will delve into the topic of vaping and e-cigarettes, provide background information on e-cigarettes, how they work, and how they can be especially harmful to youth. The presentation will also review how addiction works in the body and how this can affect youth. We will examine the marketing tactics vape/tobacco companies have used to target youth. The presentation will include tips on how to talk to your child about these topics.
