E-cigarette and use of electronic nicotine delivery systems is a growing trend among youths in the United States. According to the National Institute of Health 2018 Monitoring the Future Survey, the 10th and 12th grade increases in nicotine vaping are the largest ever recorded for any substance in 44 years of tracking youth drug use. Increasing evidence about the potential health risks of vaping, as well as prediction of future cigarette use or experimentation, underlines the need for more preventative health measures to curtail this growing drug epidemic. The aim of this community health project was the development of an educational fact sheet on vaping as an aid for primary health care providers in Vermont to discuss e-cigarette use with teens, older youths, or their guardians.
