Research – Youth Vaping and Lung Health

The American Lung Association has committed $2 million toward research to understand the alarming effects of vaping on kids and find a solution to vaping related lung injury. We are also partnering with Northwestern University in a $25 million NIH-funded grant to study millennial lung health, including the long-term impact of vaping. Additionally, we are funding several independent research projects that will study topics including how to reduce adolescent vaping.

Targeted Advocacy to Save Lives

The Lung Association will implement a targeted advocacy plan to impact tobacco policies, including e-cigarette policies, at local, state and federal levels. The plan will urge the FDA to exercise robust regulatory authority over all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and youth directed e-cigarette marketing.
