WGHS Presents Dangers of Vaping
Vaping eventnormal'> 

Vaping or JUULing is a method of delivering nicotine using an electronic device. Many parents and students believe these are harmless devices and users are only inhaling water molecules, instead, what is inhaled typically includes large amounts of addictive nicotine and other chemicals.   

West Geauga High School hosted a presentation recently for families to better understand this trend and the harmful effects the devices and chemicals have on teenagers. The event was attended by area teens and their parents.  Dr. Ellen Rome, Director of Health Services at the Cleveland Clinic presented an overview of this problem affecting our nation’s youth, followed by a panel discussion.
