Peer-reviewed publication makes CATCH My Breath the first evidence-based vaping prevention program.

A study of the youth nicotine vaping prevention program Recuperar el aliento 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 Informes de salud pública – 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.

The program also sits at the heart of Sea libre de vape, a newly launched youth vaping prevention initiative in partnership with CATCH Global Foundation, Discovery Education, and the CVS Health Foundation.
