Gabrielle Diaz focused on Vaping Education among youth in Southern Connecticut with the Stratford Health Department, serving children from the ages of 12-17 years old. Over the past six months there has been a rapid increase of e-cigarette use and related hospitalizations among youth. Originally intended for adults to reduce cigarette smoking habits, these devices have attracted youth in both middle schools and high schools. This project helped improve health equity by filling in the gaps of knowledge about e-cigarettes and vaping, their associated risks, and how big tobacco marketing tactics are affecting Connecticut youth. The main findings from my project are that students from the six schools did not know about e-cigarettes and vaping, their associated risks, and how big tobacco marketing tactics are affecting them as youth living in Connecticut. These results lined up with exactly what they were taught and helped close the knowledge gap of this topic. Although this project was successful in doing so, this just goes to show that the work is far from being over. Gabrielle hopes this project served as a realization to teachers and students that they must continue to learn about the risks and dangers of vaping so they can achieve better health outcomes and live a longer, smoke- and vape- free lifestyle.
