BE EPIC ESCAPE the VAPE
Extension E-cigarette Prevention in Rural Communities
What is Be Epic?
USU Extension received a Southeastern Utah Health Department grant in 2020 and 2021 to implement an evidence-based e-cigarette and vape prevention program targeting youth in Southeastern Utah communities. The Broad Extension of E-Cigarette Prevention in Carbon, Emery and Grand (BE-EPIC & Grand) Youth Program is using the CATCH-My Breath curriculum, an evidence-based program that provides 5th-12th grade students the opportunity to gain factual information, skills to recognize peer pressure, and improve teen’s overall ability to decline tobacco products. This website contains information for parents, teachers, and youth for prevention of e-cigarettes.
