A study of the youth nicotine vaping prevention program CATCH My Breath found that students in schools that implemented the program were half as likely to experiment with e-cigarettes over the following 16 months, compared with those in schools that did not receive the program. The publication of the findings in Public Health Reports – the official journal of the U.S. Surgeon General – makes CATCH My Breath the first evidence-based vaping prevention program. The study, funded by the St. David’s Foundation, also found the program increased student knowledge of vaping dangers and positive perceptions about choosing a vape-free lifestyle.
