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.
