Tobacco/Vape/E-cig Use Prevention & Education


Many youth and adults in our Latinx community are in the midst of a tobacco and vaping epidemic. On top of that, COVID-19 cases are disproportionally higher in our Latinx communities. Our goal is to educate our Latinx community members about the effects smoking may have on an individual and why quitting is important, especially during this time. People who are smokers/vapers are at a higher risk of contracting a severe case of COVID-19 in comparison to those that don’t smoke. There is recent data showing a disproportionate burden of illness and death among racial and ethnic minority groups by COVID-19.  Many youth and adults in our Latinx community are in the midst of a tobacco and vaping epidemic. Nationally, tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of disease and death, and Washington is no exception.
