BOISE, Idaho — With teen vaping and e-cigarette use on the rise, the United Way of Treasure Valley is getting ready to host a conversation for parents and youth on vaping. The Idaho 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Study says nearly half of all high school students have used an electronic vape product at least once in their lifetime.

Dr. Bonnie Halpern-Felsher will present information on e-cigarettes and youth nicotine use to parents and families to engage them in an educational and eye-opening discussion. Dr. Halpern-Felsher will speak for 45 minutes, then answer audience questions for the last 15. Teens and parents are both welcome at the discussion.

The discussion is set for Monday, September 23 at the Jordan Ballroom at Boise State University. It's from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and space is limited. You can RSVP here.
