As more and more students report the use of an electronic nicotine delivery device, it’s important that parents are informed.

Dr. Michelle Fiscus, Deputy Medical Director of the Division of Family Health & Wellness at the Tennessee Department of Health, will be at Centennial High School on October 25 to talk to parents about the dangers of vaping.

The talk will begin at 6 p.m. inside the Centennial High Performing Arts Center.

“Dr. Fiscus will discuss the trends and dangers associated with e-cigarette use among teens,” said WCS Health Services Director Tina Hamblen. “Tobacco use by students is linked to many high-risk behaviors that impact achievement and graduation. WCS is a 24/7 tobacco-free district, which includes the use of cigarettes, chewable tobacco and e-cigarettes.”

The event is open to the public, and you don’t have to be a Centennial High parent to attend.
