The APRU Global Health Program (GHP) invites you to participate in a new collaborative study titled “An online survey of tobacco and e-cigarettes among students in the Pacific Rim.”
In previous annual workshops of the Global Health Program, the need was identified to learn more about students’ awareness and use of tobacco and e-cigarettes. You are probably aware that electronic, or “e-cigarettes”, are a new generation of devices that deliver a nicotine-containing vapor to their users. Many products are flavored and marketed to university-aged young adults.
The GHP has created a survey to obtain information on student’s tobacco use, perceptions regarding e-cigarettes, exposure to e-cigarette marketing, and other related topics. The results may help to identify which policies may be most effective in reducing students’ tobacco use and should help member universities as they consider how to control use of e-cigarettes.
We hope that all APRU member universities will be able to participate.
