Recently, my Winston-Salem State University physical education students completed an assignment on current issues in the field of health, wellness, and sports. As the president of the American Heart Association Board in the Triad, I decided to also give myself an “assignment” about the alarming trend of youth e-cigarette use. Thus making it a teachable moment and emphasizing that their assignment was not some “meaningless” exercise. There is always more to learn, and with the introduction of e-cigarettes and popularity among young people, I wanted to understand the risks better.
