10,000 flavours: the vape marketing trap

Where

107-109 Regent St, Chippendale NSW 2008
When

Tuesday 9 April from 8pm to 9pm

The rise of cheap, flavoured, disposable vapes that are high in nicotine, is fuelling a new public health crisis.

While they’re claimed as a quit smoking aid for adults, vapes are sold aggressively to young people. High doses of nicotine, delivered alongside sweet flavours, are packaged with misinformation about vape safety.

In this talk, global authority on tobacco and vaping Associate Professor Becky Freeman shows how the vape industry is pushing nicotine onto young users. Learn how what was considered an emerging issue only a few years ago has accelerated into a health emergency.
