Most recently, faculty and fellows in our division played an important role in identifying the condition which would become known as EVALI (E-cigarette or Vaping product use Associated Lung Injury). While EVALI is believed to have been caused by contamination from vitamin E acetate, there are other issues that remain. Faculty are involved in community advocacy as well as state and national legislative initiatives to limit the sale of vaping products to anyone <21 years of age
