HYC Launches New Podcast

"Let's Talk Vape"

Thanks to our partnership and a grant from UCLA Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Equity, HYC has launched a new podcast to educate the community on the dangers of vaping. The HYC Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) Prevention Program is leading this effort. The AOD Prevention Specialists researched, developed, recorded, and published an audio and video podcast called "Let's Talk Vape" on YouTube and Spotify. Each podcast episode focuses on educating the community on vaping and its dangers. Our AOD team has already published five episodes with more on the way, including an interview with Jacquelyn Garcia, Health Promotion Specialist with the American Lung Association. Listen or watch today by scanning the QR codes below or clicking on the following links: Listen on Spotify or Watch on YouTube.

The HYC AOD Prevention Specialists will also be hosting a contest for youth to recreate a vape advertisement with factual information, educating the community about what is in a vape product and its health effects. The contest will occur from March 1, 2022 through March 22, 2022. Youth participants can post their submissions on Instagram and tag @aodprevention_hyc or by emailing submissions to Martha Dorantes at mdorantes@hycinc.org. We will also accept physical copies. The community will be able to vote on Instagram stories. Follow our AOD program and look for more information to come.
