Our teens are caught in the crossfire of a war between a massive vaping industry and the public health entities trying to reign them in. We will highlight current teen vaping statistics and the latest policy changes on flavor bans, disposable vapes, and more. Parents, Youth organizers, and Drug-Free Coalition leaders join Dr. Aaron Weiner, a board-certified licensed clinical psychologist and Founder of Bridge Forward Group, who will provide a broad-spectrum analysis of the current state of vaping and implications for our youth’s future.
Bio: Dr. Weiner is a strong advocate for evidence-based care in treating chemical dependency and behavioral addictions, as well as a proponent of integrating behavioral health services into medical settings. He has spoken nationally on the topics of opioid addiction, marijuana commercialization, and the vaping epidemic, as well as serving as a context expert for both policy-makers and media outlets.
