Roosevelt Island Parents & Students Invited To Learn About Health Impacts Of E-Cigarette Vaping From Medical Experts On May 17 - Sponsored By Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright & Community Board 8

Roosevelt Island and Manhattan Upper East Side NY State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright reports:

I hope you will join me tomorrow evening for a panel I am cosponsoring with Community Board 8 Health, Seniors and Social Services Committee, "Vaping: Impacts on Students and Our Health."

As featured in the New York Times, we are seeing a growing trend of vaping in our schools across our city and state. That is why we are holding a forum with a panel of experts to educate and receive community feedback on vaping in our community.

We will be joined by Associate Professor at NYU School of Medicine Dr. Donna Shelley, New York City Department of Health Bureau of Chronic Disease Preventions and Tobacco Control's Kevin R.J. Schroth and Achala Talati, and parents of local middle school students.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!
