Speaker: Steven Kelder, PhD, MPH

Approximately 90% of adult smokers first tried a cigarette by the age 18. Data also shows that infrequent smoking in adolescence is often linked to the habits of established adult smoking. Furthermore, while it is perceived that electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) may help some smokers quit, some young adults who have never smoked are now using e-cigarettes recreationally, potentially increasing their risk for the initiation of smoking.

In this webinar, we discuss youth targeting by the tobacco industry and best practices for cessation and prevention.
