E Cigarettes and JUUL: Addicting a New Generation

  • Wednesday, January 15, 2020
  • 12:00-1:00
  • Ticon III - Training and Development Room 2400

Join Kim Homer Vagadori, Project Director for the California Youth Advocacy Network, in this special presentation on how e-cigarettes, vapes, JUUL, and Sorens, are changing the landscape of tobacco control. Youth and young adults are more likely to use these new and emerging tobacco and nicotine products than any other age group population. Sales of JUULs have increased 800% in the past year, and research shows that these products are being used by young people who may have not considered using tobacco. RSVP to worklife@ucdavis.edu

People’s theories about their own intelligence and abilities have a significant impact on their motivation, effort, and approach to challenges. Those who have a growth mindset—they believe their abilities are malleable and intelligence can be cultivated—are more likely embrace challenges and persist in the face of failure. This research-based presentation will explore the definitions, examples and impacts of fixed vs. growth mindsets and will provide solutions for changing your mindset and helping support growth mindset at work. RSVP to worklife@ucdavis.edu
