E-Cigarettes and Vaping — Know the Risks

Even though e-cigarettes are often marketed as being safer than conventional cigarettes, their vapor may still contain a variety of carcinogens and toxic chemicals, including formaldehyde. If you need help quitting vaping, just come talk with someone at Health Promotion.


Improve your odds of quitting smoking with this intensive treatment program. This proven program lasts approximately three weeks, and combines medication and training to help you quit.

UB EvarQuit Program
