CATCH My Breath

CATCH My Breath Program Manager

E-cigarette use has grown dramatically in recent years to become the most commonly used tobacco product by middle and high school students. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, a highly addictive substance that can harm adolescent brain development and has been associated with health and behavior problems. During this session, participants will be introduced to a new, best practices-based e-cigarette prevention program for middle school students and learn how one school district went about adopting and implementing this program to provide accurate information, promote media literacy, teach refusal skills, and increase students’ intentions to abstain from e-cigarettes.
