About the webinar:

This webinar will provide a sneak preview of findings from a qualitative study that explored what attracts adolescents to vaping, what deters those who do not vape, and how vaping affects the lives of teens who vape regularly. The findings are based on interviews with 64 participants aged 14-17 years from a school in the Wellington region. By focusing on young people’s perspectives and experiences, we can gain important insights to guide policy, practice and research about youth vaping.
