Web Chat: The Dangers of Vaping


Friday, February 21, 2020


3:00pm - 4:00pm




Last year, an outbreak of a mysterious lung disease associated with vaping sent hundreds of people to
the hospital. While public health authorities are closer to identifying the cause of e-cigarette, or vaping,
product use-associated lung injury (EVALI), questions still remain. Is it safe to vape? Michigan Medicine
experts will discuss the risks associated with vaping, what is known about the vaping illness outbreak,
and what parents should be on the lookout for.

Our expert panel includes Clifford Douglas, J.D.; Douglas Arenberg, M.D.; Thomas Saba, M.D.

Participation is free and the chat will be streamed live over the Michigan Medicine Facebook page.
