Children and teenagers have always faced peer pressure in school, but a relatively new concern is the peer pressure to use e-cigarettes and vape, around friends or even during school. Susan Walley, M.D., pediatrician at the University of Alabama at Birmingham can discuss a wide range of electronic and traditional cigarette use topics, including:
- Why children and teens are using e-cigarettes
- The damage e-cigarettes can cause to children and teens
- How parents can educate their children on vaping
- How parents can intervene on their children’s e-cigarette habits
- Teen tobacco usage
Walley is available for phone or live/taped interviews. The UAB News Studio is available for live or recorded HD video interviews with UAB experts worldwide through LTN Global Networks. The studio is equipped with an ISDN line for digital radio interviews.
