Our Vision

Make the truth about vaping common knowledge throughout the general population.

VAEP is a grass roots nonprofit set up by a registered nurse to help people learn the truth about vaping. After reviewing the scientific evidence, we deliver the information in a way that anyone can understand it.

Please see our Education section for the tools we currently have available to help you learn about vaping.

VAEP is founded on nursing principles such as:

  • self directed learning from credible resources

  • teaching others so they can make informed choices

  • respecting a person’s right to make their own decisions.

In keeping with these principles, our corporate code of ethics is based in medical bioethics.

Our Mission

Through advocacy and education, disseminate to the general population accurate and comprehensive information about vaping.

Ensure smokers can make an informed decision about vaping as a smoking alternative.

We are currently developing our online learning center, VAEPology. This resource will consist of a reference library, a video library, myths/truths flowcharts and short animated tutorials. VAEPology will allow you to easily access the information you want and link to the supporting scientific evidence.

Objectives

Unify the growing numbers of knowledgeable vapers and their passion for vaping by engaging them in the development and implementation of a population education campaign.

Create support for the effective utilization of vaping within non-vaping populations such as government, non-profit organizations and healthcare agencies by providing access to vaping information and facilitating informed decision making within those  groups.

Once our VAEPology is complete, we will begin direct advocating to community leaders and healthcare professionals. We will also be building resources and support to empower vapers in their advocating efforts.
