Vaping and Juuling: What are the Consequences
Mar 5 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Join us for a special Women’s Health Initiative event.
Vaping and Juuling: What are the Consequences?

Tuesday, March 5, 2019, 12:00 – 1:30 PM
Greenwich Hospital Noble Conference Center

Juuling, a discreet form of vaping, has become one of the most widespread dangers among school-aged children today. This has parents, educators and medical professionals alike concerned. Adolescents can develop symptoms of nicotine dependence such as increased tolerance and inability to stop using, as well as withdrawal symptoms like headaches, irritability, and difficulty sleeping, after only a few weeks of vaping. The long-term health risks are less clear, but will likely include increased risk of lung disease and cancers. Dr. Jeremy Barowsky and Dr. Alissa Greenberg will discuss the known and potential risks of using e-cigarettes and how we can help individuals who have begun using these various devices.

Jeremy Barowsky, MD

Dr. Barowsky is a Harvard trained psychiatrist who is double-boarded by both the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Board of Addiction Medicine. His life’s passion has been connecting with people and helping to bring them to a place of wellness. Dr. Barowsky previously served as Director of Addiction Medicine at Greenwich Hospital and is now privileged to treat individuals struggling with both psychiatric and substance abuse disorders in private practice.

Alissa Greenberg, MD

Dr. Greenberg is a Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Specialist in Greenwich, CT. She graduated from Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, completed her internal medicine training at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and her pulmonary and critical care medicine fellowships at NYU Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City. She came to Greenwich in 2014 after spending 15 years at NYU as a clinician and researcher investigating methods for the early detection of lung cancer.

Reach for Stars

Support the Future of Greenwich Hospital.
Your gift toward Under the Stars will impact Pediatrics and Women’s Health. The sky’s the limit!

Equipment and Technology Fund

Impacting patients’ lives in real time is the driving force behind all we do at Greenwich Hospital. Your support will help fund a wide array of items to provide our doctors, nurses and clinical staff with the most up-to-date medical technology and equipment.

In Pediatrics, examples of medical equipment and technology to purchase include comfort kits for children, a vision screener, a portable EKG monitor for the NICU, pediatric cribs, and Giraffe™ warmers. A requested gamma camera will support heart health in both pediatrics and women’s health. Support the Pediatrics Equipment and Technology Fund.

In Women’s Health, funds will be directed toward the purchase of items such as breast cancer survivorship programs, an IVF/Fertility ultrasound system, and labor and delivery IV carts. Included in women’s health is attention to patients at risk of heart disease. Heart and vascular items to fund include an intra-aortic balloon pump. Support the Women’s Health Equipment and Technology Fund.

Education Fund

Providing educational resources to patients and clinicians helps promote shared decision-making and improves health behaviors.

In Pediatrics, funds will support cancer education packets for children, neonatal education program for nurses, pregnancy exercise and nutrition initiative, bicycle helmets and head injury awareness, infant and child CPR classes with life-sized mannequins, and education booklets for cardiovascular patients. Support the Pediatrics Education Fund.

In Women’s Health, funds will be directed toward the purchase of educational materials for women’s heart awareness and disease management, and for expecting mothers with gestational diabetes. Educational opportunities for our clinicians include online access to services like Perinatal Quality Foundation Genetics Education modules. Support the Women’s Health Education Fund.
