EDUCATIONAL WEBINARS/PSA'S

Emily Reising, Health Promotions Specialist with the American Lung Association, provided education about what exactly is an e-cigarette, how they work, and what is in them.

The main concern is that Big Tobacco is targeting our kids with clever marketing, enticing flavors, and paid celebrity influencers, who downplay the risk and make e-cigarettes look harmless.

We all know that stress is a part of life but when does worry become anxiety? This presentation will help parents and guardians recognize the signs and symptoms of anxiety at different stages of development. The goal is not to eliminate worry but rather how to manage our anxiety response in healthy ways during especially uncertain times. Jeanette Troiano is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) currently working as a school-based therapist with Applewood Centers. 

Despite significant declines, tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of preventable death and disability in the United States.
