Dr. Joe Thompson: Teen Vaping Epidemic

There was a time when tobacco use among teens was rampant, with many schools even including a designated smoking section on campus years ago. Now, students have turned their attention toward electronic cigarettes and vapes. 

“This really is a new type of product, but it has invaded our school system,” said Dr. Joe Thompson, President and CEO of the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement. “If you talk to any high school teacher, principal or other personnel, it is pervasive across our schools.” 

Dr. Thompson shared more about the teen vaping epidemic with host Zach Parker on the latest episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including measures that need to be taken to ensure our children’s safety and his role at a teen vaping summit held last year in Arkansas.
