Webinar: Ending vaping the way it starts: A social cessation solution for teens

According to a recent study in JAMA Pediatrics, 45% of teens who vape want to quit. These teens need help and support to quit successfully, but they may not feel ready to enroll in a traditional cessation program. Plus, it’s hard to face a problem that started socially… alone.

Join us for a sneak preview into a social-first, teen-first, vaping-first intervention developed in partnership with HopelabUCSF, and Rescue Agency. Through peer support groups on Instagram, we educate teens on quitting, provide behavioral and cognitive coping tools to make quitting easier, and connect them with social support from other teens who are trying to quit.

In this 1-hour webinar, you'll learn:

  • Insights about what we’ve learned from teens who vape and want to stop.
  • The science behind social-media-based interventions.
  • How to apply an Instagram-based approach to cessation education.
