Last week a legislative briefing was held at the Hawaii State Capitol to inform Hawaii legislators about the current status of Hawaii's youth e-cigarette epidemic and recommended steps to address it. Olelo covered the event and the video archive of the briefing is now available at this link: http://olelo.granicus.com/player/clip/73889?view_id=13

While the entire 2-hour video is very informative, if your time is limited, it's highly recommended to view Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children Pediatrician Brian Mih, M.D.'s presentation on the known health effects of e-cigarette use that begins at the 47-minute point in the video.
Please share this with the keiki in your lives, or with other parents, and discuss the issue with your children.
