OTRU Update

Public debate abounds about e-cigarettes, their promotion, sale and use; concerns over youth uptake; the potential for renormalization of smoking; their effectiveness as a cessation aid; and their health impacts. OTRU, in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), will conduct research on e-cigarettes to investigate these issues through a grant awarded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
