E-cigarettes are taking the global nicotine market by storm, spurring researchers to ask whether the new devices are a helpful quitting tool for smokers or a serious threat to public health.
On April 16, David Hammond (pictured right), a professor in Waterloo's School of Public Health and Health Systems, will join a panel of experts in a live webcast hosted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The webcast will explore the fiercely debated e-cigarette market—from marketing to youth and the content of warning labels, to the design of the products.
University of Waterloo TD Discovery Day in Health Sciences is presented in partnership with The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, and is a day of hands-on workshops to help grade 10 and 11 high school students explore the wide variety of careers in the field of health sciences.
This year’s event features a keynote lecture from Dr. Jan Christilaw.
