Clearing The Air: Vaping awareness presentations to highlight health risks

Published on Friday, 19 August 2022 at 2:46:06 PM

The Shire’s Youth Team is partnering with Perennial Health Institute to help raise awareness about the health risks associated with vaping through a series of presentations over the coming months.

The “Clearing The Air” sessions will be hosted by Holistic Counsellor and Social Worker Azelene Williams, who will discuss key concepts and theories around vaping and nicotine addiction, connecting them to her own lived experience.

The Vaping Clearing the AIR presentation will cover areas such as:

  • Vape and E-cigarettes anatomy;
  • Nicotine;
  • Peer pressure or social norms;
  • Lung disease;
  • What you can do about vaping and e-cigarette issues; and
  • How to quit vaping

With the help of the Youth Team, two separate presentations will be delivered to students at Byford Secondary College and Court Grammar School.

A free online Zoom session targeting parents, guardians, teachers and carers of young people will also be available to anyone wishing to attend.
