Vaping: Know the truth

To educate America’s students about the health dangers of e-cigarette use and reverse the pervasive youth vaping public health crisis, Truth Initiative and Kaiser Permanente, in collaboration with the American Heart Association, launched a national youth vaping prevention curriculum called Vaping: Know the truth. This free digital learning experience is part of Truth Initiative’s nationally recognized truth campaign and made available to schools by leading social impact education innovator, EVERFI.

In addition to encouraging students to live vape-free lives, this self-led interactive-curriculum offers resources to help young people who are currently using e-cigarettes to quit through truth’s first-of-its-kind text message youth quit vaping program called This is Quitting already helping over 700,000 youth and young adults on their journeys to quit.
