Virtual Panel Discussion: Vaping and COVID-19

  •  May 19, 2020
     12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Numerous sources have suggested vaping could be a risk factor for either contracting or increasing the severity of COVID-19. Some politicians have gone so far as to demand the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) temporarily ban e-cigarettes until the pandemic subsides. The World Health Organization (WHO) claims the tobacco industry is creating doubt about the risks of nicotine and tobacco product use and COVID-19.

You’re invited to join this panel discussion to hear what is known about coronavirus and vaping, the impact misinformation is having on tobacco harm reduction, and how policymakers should consider regulating alternative nicotine products in the age of COVID-19.
