As traditional cigarette use declines, there has been a rise in the prevalence of vaping and E-Cigarette models  which deliver the same nicotine dose that tobacco does - perhaps even higher.  As government and school agencies determine their best practices in regards to the health issues involved, there has been a movement to deliver information to the general public.  A scheduled forum in Eveleth on Wednesday, February 6 aims to do just that.

The forum - "E-Cigarettes and Mental Health Community Solutions" - is a presentation of the St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services division; it's co-sponsored by the offices of Commissioners Keith Nelson ad Mike Jugovich as well as Essentia Health.  Attendees can expect a discussion about E-cigarettes and their rising popularity, nicotine addiction, treatment options, and a conversation about community solutions.

The forum is free to the general public.  A light dinner will be served before the presentation begins.

Here are the details:

  • What:  E-Cigarettes and Mental Health Community Solutions
  • When:  Wednesday, February 6 - 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
  • Where:  Eveleth Auditorium, 421 Jackson Street
