Published June 16, 2017

An article on CNN reports on a new study that showed that the number of high school and middle school students who use e-cigarettes has decreased for the first time and quotes Gary Giovino, professor of community health and health behavior in the School of Public Health and Health Professions, who said the finding made him cautiously optimistic.
