This week on 0684-Radi0, our free podcast (subscribe here in the iTunes Store), we talk to Officer Jeff Deak of the New Canaan Police Department and Stacey Walker of New Canaan CARES about vaping, a substance abuse issue that remains a major local health concern, especially as it relates to New Canaan youth.
Walker since the fall has been leading the New Canaan Coalition, a volunteer group that seeks to educate the community about the dangers of vaping. This Super Bowl weekend, a number of local pizzerias—Dante’s, Joe’s Pizza, Pinocchio Pizza, and Vicolo Pizza & Trattoria—will be using pizza boxes with vaping education messages designed by New Canaan High School students. Other local businesses that will feature NCHS students’ anti-vaping stickers on their cups and takeout bags include Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee, Club Sandwich, New Canaan Chicken, Tony’s Deli and Connecticut Sandwich Co.
