Phoenix schools, Crouse Health to host educational vaping program

The Phoenix Central School District and Crouse Health are sponsoring an upcoming informational program about the dangers of vaping.

All community members are invited to attend the session from 6-8 p.m. March 25 at John C. Birdlebough High School. A panel of experts will be on hand to discuss the risks associated with vaping and e-cigarette usage. Speakers include health educators, medical doctors, therapists, addiction specialists and members of law enforcement.

“One in four students in high school currently are vaping or juuling,” said a Crouse Hospital spokesperson. “As they move from freshman to senior year, the numbers drastically increase. By 12th grade, 42 percent of seniors are vaping. It is now classified as an epidemic.”
