Great American Smokeout Now Focusing On Vaping

Nov 21, 2019

A second vaping-related death has been reported in New York. The state health department reports the man was in his 30s, lived in Manhattan and had a history of vaping. 

E-cigarettes present a new challenge to health care professionals in the fight against tobacco use. November 21 is the annual Great American Smokeout, the day set aside for smokers to take one day off from the habit, and perhaps start a new tobacco-free life. Erin Sinisgalli, Director of St. Peter’s Health Partners Community Health Program, tells WAMC's Brian Shields that research on the harms of vaping is a new area of study.
