BCMS Soiree: The prevalence of vaping in our community. June 6, 2019

BCMS will host our second all-member Soiree of the year on Thursday, June 6. Join us for an engaging talk about the prevalence of vaping among our community’s children and adults, and what concerns this inevitably raises. 

According to the most recent national Youth Risk Behavior Survey, one in four high school students in Colorado reported vaping, a rate twice the national average. This makes Colorado No. 1 in the nation for youth vaping among the 37 states surveyed. There is substantial evidence that youth who vape are likely to later smoke cigarettes. There is also strong evidence that nicotine, which is found in most popular vape products, is harmful to the developing brain.

Presenters include: Heath Harmon, director of health programs at Boulder County Public Health; Brittany Carpenter, community health specialist at BCPH; Stephanie Faren, RN, MSN, MPH, health and wellness coordinator at Boulder Valley School District; and Elizabeth Blackwell, RN, BSN, BVSD Fairview School Nurse.

Join us for this critical presentation that will be preceded by a fabulous dinner and drinks. RSVP today.

WHEN: Thursday, June 6; 6 p.m. cocktails/networking, healthy buffet; 6:30 p.m. presentation
WHERE: The Boulder Cork, 3295 30th St, Boulder, CO 80301
