June’s edition of ‘The Unsung Lung Podcast’ sees the first time that Jacob has been joined by multiple guests, and for a good reason. Together with Bethany Dick, Health Promotion Coordinator for Lung Saskatchewan, and Darshana Lanke, Youth4Change Ambassador, the trio discuss the important topic of the dangers of vaping and e-cigarettes. They address the prevalence of vaping in youth-aged populations, significant health effects, and social movements brought on by this health issue.
