The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ has launched a ‘Don’t Get Sucked In’ vaping education campaign.
The website has been designed to challenge students’ knowledge of the vaping industry to find out if they have been ‘sucked in’ and then explores some of the common misconceptions and risks associated with vapes and e-cigarettes. You can access all of the campaign information here including downloadable posters for you to share online or print.
All of the content on the website has been fully backed up with both scientific and medical research. These references have also been provided in the research and findings area of the website for quick access. Feel free to also follow the campaign on Facebook and Instagram.
