Virtual Panel Discussion: Vaping and COVID-19

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm
Washington, DC 20005
United States

Numerous sources have suggested vaping could be a risk factor for either contracting or increasing the severity of COVID-19. Some politicians have gone so far as to demand the FDA temporarily ban e-cigarettes until the pandemic subsides. The World Health Organization claims the tobacco industry is creating doubt about the risk of nicotine & tobacco product use and COVID-19.

Join this panel discussion to hear what impact this misinformation is having on tobacco harm reduction and how policymakers should consider regulating alternative nicotine products in the age of COVID-19.
