Student health services at S&T cautions students on the effects of electronic cigarettes and vaping, in light of nationally reported cases of severe lung damage.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S Food and Drug Administration, and state health departments are investigating a multistate outbreak of lung injury associated with the use of e-cigarette products.
While this investigation is ongoing, CDC recommends that you consider refraining from using e-cigarette or vaping products, especially those containing THC. Students with symptoms like those reported in the outbreak should visit Student Health Services at 910 W. 10th St. or contact their health care provider.
For help quitting, Miner Wellness offers free nicotine cessation and coaching sessions, patches, and quit kits. To schedule a session, students should contact Miner Wellness at firstname.lastname@example.org or 341-4225. Read the CDC recommendations.
