Dr. Phil Sheridan '78 on the Dangers of Vaping

Amid rising concerns about the dangers and health risks of vaping, Loyola Academy sought the expertise of current parent, alumnus and pulmonologist Dr. Phil Sheridan '78, who delivered a very important and timely presentation to students on October 30.
Since 2007, the popularity of vaping—the process of inhaling aerosol (vapor) created from a heated liquid—has grown rapidly among high school aged students. The liquid can be a combination of harmful chemicals including nicotine, nicotine salts, flavoring chemicals, heavy metals and THC. Sweet flavors such as vanilla, watermelon and strawberry are favored by the approximately 3.6 million middle school and high school students users. It’s a sweeping problem, and we are grateful to Dr. Sheridan for sharing his time and expertise with our students.
