CLIFTON PARK — CAPTAIN Community Human Services CAPteens will host a community conversation in partnership with the Shenendehowa Central School District and the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library to address the issue of e-cigarette use, also known as vaping.
The event will be held at the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library on Monday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. Teens and adults are encouraged to attend. Registration is not required.
The discussion is meant to help educate and inform the public about this prominent issue in the local community, according to a press release from CAPTAIN.
The three community panelists include representatives from the Saratoga County Sheriff's Department, The Prevention Council in Saratoga Springs, and the smoking cessation division of a local hospital. There will be a question and answer session for attendees.
Information tables will be set up beginning at 5:30 p.m. to highlight local organizations which focus on vaping.
Vaping is the fifth issue covered by the CAPteen’s REAL TALK series. Previous conversations concentrated on heroin, suicide, diversity and mental health.
