  • A Note From Our Prevention Specialist

    In Heads Up on

    Recent claims that youth e-cigarette use in an “epidemic” are not exaggerated; according to the results of the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) from 2017, 40.6% of students in DPS have used an electronic vapor product at some point in their life. In addition, 57% of DPS students do not think that people who use electronic vapor products every day have a moderate or great risk of harm.

    Parental involvement is the number one way to prevent risky behavior in teens, and it is important that you make time to talk to your child about the risks associated with vaping.

    For information about vaping and health, visit click HERE. If parents are concerned that their student has already experimented with vaping or have other health related concerns they should reach out to their school based health clinics, which are run by Denver Health, or get in touch with their students health care provider.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Prevention Specialist, Julie Goldberg, at julie_goldberg@dpsk12.org.
