Vaping Community Event

One in four high school students have tried vaping in the past 30 days. Some believe that it’s a safe alternative to smoking, but is that true? Do we know enough about the risks? Hear the latest from a panel of experts and join the conversation about the health effects of vaping.

Presented in partnership with Lawson Health Research Institute, this community event includes a series of small presentations followed by a panel discussion featuring the team that published the first reported case of vaping-related lung injury in Canada.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Karen Bosma, Critical Care Specialist, London Health Sciences Centre, Associate Scientist, Lawson Health Research Institute and Associate Professor, Department of Medicine, Schulich Medicine & Dentistry, Western University
  • Grace Parraga, PhD, Scientist, Robarts Research Institute and Professor, Medical Biophysics, Schulich Medicine & Dentistry, Western University
  • Carly Weeks, Health Reporter, The Globe and Mail
