Seeking "Vaping Unveiled" Educators

Vaping Unveiled FlyerAugust 30, 2019

Since his retirement, former NHMS president Dr. Albee Budnitz has been working with Breathe New Hampshire to provide community education on the dangers of vaping.

As their flyer says, the “…free program provides youth, teens, community members, parents and educators the opportunity to learn more about the impact of vaping, Juuling and nicotine addiction on youth, including the latest trends in NH. Learn why teen vaping and nicotine addiction is a public health concern and what you can do to help prevent it.”

The program has been so well-received that Breathe New Hampshire is having trouble keeping up with the demand. As a member of NHMS’s re-vamped Education Council, Dr. Budnitz has volunteered to help create a train the trainer course, so that other physicians can both learn the material and help educate the public.

Currently slide sets are available for students in seventh grade, all the way up to medical school. They are updated weekly as new data comes in. The slide decks can also be adapted for adult laypersons and health care professionals.
