Alliance High School Senior, Joel Baker, receives scholarship from Panhandle Public Health District


Panhandle Public Health District (PPHD) recently partnered with area students to spread the

word on the dangers of JUULing. The campaign featured high school athletes from around the

region who committed to saying no to the harmful effects of JUULing. One scholarship

recipient was selected based on a social media campaign and we are excited to announce the

winner of a $250 scholarship is Alliance High School Senior, Joel Baker. Joel is the son of Michael and Valerie Baker of Alliance


PPHD wants to remind everyone to not let the ads from JUUL fool you - JUUL's flavored e-

cigarettes can deliver the same amount of nicotine as 20 cigarettes. Last year, teen e-cigarette

use spiked to 78%. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive and can harm

brain development.


Some e-cigarettes look like regular tobacco products, such as cigarettes. But in recent years, e-

cigarettes look like other things, including USB flash drives, pens, and other everyday items.

JUUL is one of the most common e-cigarettes shaped like a USB flash drive. None of them are

safe for young people to use.


Help us spread the awareness of the harmful effects of e-cigarette use by talking to students

about the dangers today. We commend each of the area athletes that committed to being a

leader and helped raise awareness of this increasing problem by steering clear of the harmful

effects of JUULing.

Panhandle Public Health District is working together to improve the health, safety, and quality

of life for all who live, learn, work and play in the Panhandle. Our vision is that we are a

healthier and safer Panhandle Community.
