In the Air is a graphic medicine built to foster conversations with and among young people around vaping, choices about substance use, and social factors. This graphic novel-styled story of five teens going through high school incorporates behavioral science of substance misuse prevention with the stories, interests, and ideas of members of the Tobacco Free Rhode Island Youth Ambassadors. The novel has questions to help guide the discussion, a strong research base, and roots in risk and protective factors. During this session, participants will become familiar with the resource, how to use it to facilitate conversations with young people, and how to use the accompanying facilitator guide. Participants will learn how to request copies and have an opportunity to ask questions and explore how this product can work to support their vaping prevention work.



  • Learn about and understand what a graphic medicine is.
  • Understand how to implement In the Air to fidelity and informally.
  • Practice facilitating conversation with this tool.
