Let’s Talk: Youth Vaping & Marijuana Use - October 24, 2019
Education and awareness surrounding the latest teen trends in youth e-cigarette use is an important step in prevention and intervention. SCIP is partnering with Lincoln Public Schools, Bryan Independence Center and Region V Systems in an effort to provide a community awareness event surrounding the use of e-cigarettes. Please join us on October 24 to learn more. For educators, families and community members who are not in the Lincoln/Lancaster County area, this event will be recorded and uploaded to our SCIP website at www.scipnebraska.com within a couple of weeks of the event. LPS will also be providing this event live via Facebook.
