Project Description:
Vaping, and related “vape culture,” has become a public health problem just as tobacco and cigarettes
were for prior generations. This project will dig deeply into the culture and marketing of vaping, how
“vape-fluencers” leverage social media and other platforms to disseminate products, and the resulting
risks to public health, eventually constructing and implementing workable vaping cessation campaigns
Month/Year Project Began: May 2020
