The event will be held on December 4, 2019 at 7:00 pm in the Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on the MSU Campus. The US Surgeon General has called the rapid increase in youth e-cigarette use an epidemic. Come learn about the dangers of vaping and what can be done as a community to prevent youth vaping. The event is free and open to the public. Funding for this event was provided by a grant from St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation.
