What Everyone Should Know about Vaping
Virtual Vaping Educational Conference
This one-hour virtual conference for schoolteachers, parents, and health professionals, will focus on the different vaping devices, including THC and nicotine containing devices, and resources to assist parents and teachers to help students learn about the risks, the health effects, and provide guidance for quitting.
LOCAL CESSATION CLASSES
UPMC Hanover, UPMC Pinnacle and WellSpan Health all continue to offer tobacco cessation services during this pandemic. We have transitioned to offering these programs virtually and have found that this has been beneficial in serving those with time constraints, limited transportation and other barriers that may exist with in-person counseling.
Programs range from group cessation classes to individualize counseling.
