Vaping, e-cigs and tampered cartridges

Nearly 25 percent of teens use e-cigarettes or vapes. Experts at Children’s Minnesota found a cluster of cases of severe lung damage in teens and young adults that they believe to be linked to vaping. With vaping becoming a national epidemic, concerned parents and news outlets have turned to Children’s for answers.

Children’s has garnered extensive national attention on the topic of vaping, and has become the thought leader on the subject. Nearly all major media outlets across the country have featured Children’s, including the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, CBS News and NBC Nightly News. Dr. Emily Chapman, chief medical officer, and Dr. Anne Griffiths, pediatric pulmonologist, have conducted interviews across these channels, including a live studio interview with Dr. Chapman on CNN.
