Description of Work: The emerging use of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) is growing nationally and in Boulder County. As these products are fairly new, research is constantly evolving. TEPP is interested in synthesizing information on: 1) the health effects from usage and/or exposure to these products, and 2) the business and economic impact of these products. TEPP is also interested in gathering data to inform the work in organizational and public policy. Furthermore, TEPP hopes to use this information to guide program communication about ENDS in the community. The volunteer will conduct literature review, compile findings, and present results to BCPH staff. This could fulfill practicum requirements, with the opportunity to discuss a capstone project with TEPP staff.
