Topic: Youth E cigarette Prevention and the CATCH My Breath Program Policy, Prevention and Implementation
Duration: 55 minutes

In this month’s webinar, we will discuss the importance of youth E-cigarette prevention, creation of the CATCH My Breath program, and policy and implementation efforts across the country, including pilot results from the program’s launch this August. On the heels of a new U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ruling this summer extending the authority to regulate E-cigarettes, CATCH My Breath, is a first-of-its-kind program rolled out to middle schools across the country to address the recent spike in youth E-cigarette use. The program was developed by the Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health, and is distributed by the CATCH Global Foundation.
