Tūturu Webinar: How schools can respond to youth vaping

Our second vaping webinar builds on the facts presented by ASH's Ben Youdan in the first and explores how schools can respond.

In this webinar, Tūturu team members Annabel Prescott, Tumokai Morgan and Ben Birks Ang will talk about how schools can address wellbeing issues surrounding vaping using practical, ready to implement solutions.

We will explore ways to engage students to build their health competencies and guide you through a range of resources we have developed for secondary schools in Aotearoa.

The webinar also explores pastoral support pathways and policy frameworks that help enhance Tūturu teaching and learning resources.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
