CHICO, Calif. - With e-cigarette use by teens reaching new levels, Chico Unified School District, along with California Health Collaborative, are hosting a community workshop.

While cigarette use by teens has decreased, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has found that electronic cigarette use by teens has increased.

The free community workshop will have local experts to discuss:

- What electronic cigarettes and vaping devices are? What's in them?

- What the dangers are for youth?

- How the promotion of vaping devices has led to a large increase in use by youth? What does this look like locally?

- What can parents, schools and the community do to protect the youth?

Along with representatives from CUSD and California Health Collaborative, Chico Police Department and Butte County Public Health will also have representatives present.

A Q&A session will conclude the night after presentations have completed.
