In 2018, one in five high school students and one in 20 middle school students reported that they had “vaped” in the past 30 days, a substantial increase from the previous year. In this webinar, we outline exactly what E-cigarettes are, explore the youth vaping epidemic, and introduce CATCH My Breath as one possible solution. CATCH My Breath is a youth E-cigarette and Juul prevention program developed by the University of Texas Health Science Center. The program provides up-to-date information to teachers, parents, and health professionals to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed decisions about the use of E-cigarettes, including JUUL devices. CATCH My Breath uses a peer-led teaching approach and meets national and state health education standards. And best of all, it’s FREE!!
