Charting Pediatrics

Sep 22, 2020

Register today for our next COVID-19 Virtual Provider Town Hall with updates from our Infectious Diseases team and live Q&A from participants.

Just before the COVID-19 pandemic we were witnessing a fast-growing and new epidemic for pediatricians --the association between teen vaping and acute lung injury. It is not surprising that a recent study by researchers at Stanford University has shown a link between vaping and a substantially increased risk of COIVD-19 among teenagers and young adults. Today we are going to revisit the topic of EVALI – E-Cigarette or Vaping Associated Lung Injury – and the impact and of COVID-19 on teens who vape with Robin Deterding, MD.

Dr. Deterding is the Chief of Pulmonary Medicine at Children’s Colorado and is Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
