According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, more than three million adolescents used e-cigarettes in 2018, including 4.9% of middle school students. Smoking and vaping in adolescents is a public health emergency, but Saratoga County has tools to help.

Join us for an educational seminar with our community partners to learn more about:
  • Types of e-cigarettes and vaping devices
  • The effects of smoking on the lungs, and other risks to adolescent bodies
  • Cancer prevention
  • Behavioral health risks and addiction
  • Resources available to you from Saratoga Hospital, Saratoga County Public Health, the Prevention Council, the American Cancer Society, and Parent University at Saratoga Springs School District.
This program is designed for parents and guardians, educators and school staff, health and human services workers, and other adults who mentor young people. It is sponsored by the Cancer Control Committee of Saratoga Hospital.
