NYSVA's New York Minute...

In May, NYSVA sent board members David Barry and Spike Babaian to Washington DC to attend the first E-Cig Summit in the United States. Famous for its ground breaking presentations that moved forward-thinking e-cigarette legislation in the UK, the summit featured expert presentations on current data regarding population patterns of use among youth and adults, results regarding performance, toxicity, and utility of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation and reduction, and the public health impacts surrounding youth initiation and progression as well as impacts on adult smoking behavior.

In addition to presentations by scientists on the latest research data in the world, while there, Barry and Babaian made worthwhile connections with other advocates, and pre-eminent researchers working on e-cigarette studies. You can view the summit presentations here.
