MHA CEO Brian PetersToday, Governor Whitmer issued executive orders to better regulate e-cigarettes and vaping. The Michigan Health & Hospital Association strongly supports the governor’s actions. In recent years, communities across Michigan have seen a significant rise in the use of these products by youth and adults, with little or no knowledge about the long-term effects of their use. Our member hospitals have been asked by schools to specifically focus on prevention of e-cigarette use as they develop their community health priorities, and we believe these executive orders will support those prevention efforts as well as help current users quit. As a mission-driven organization whose focus is advancing the health of individuals and communities, we applaud Governor Whitmer on today’s actions and look forward to continuing to partner with the State to improve the well-being of our residents.
