Chasing Clouds

A five-part podcast series exploring the social and public health impact of vaping in contemporary Australia

This engaging, evidence-based podcast series draws upon the expertise of young people, doctors, educators, vapers, academics, and frontline community organisations to bring to light key social and public health issues around e-cigarettes and what we can do moving forward.

What are the health impacts of nicotine and non-nicotine vapes?

How common is vaping amongst Australian youth and how are e-cigarettes being aggressively marketed to them on social media?

What are the arguments for using e-cigarettes as a tool to quit smoking for adult smokers who have tried everything else?

What kind of regulation is necessary to ensure e-cigarettes become inaccessible to teenagers?

What is working in existing Australian education programs and what isn’t working?

How can vaping rates be most effectively reduced among Australian young people?

These are some of the questions asked in this podcast series.

Chasing Clouds is a QUO podcast series produced in collaboration with the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation and the Head and Neck Cancer Foundation.

John Fordham School of Translational Medicine

Sarah, Ben, and Nick Fordham, together with Veronica, have formed The Fordham Foundation to celebrate and commemorate John’s remarkable life and contribution to the community.

The Fordham Foundation held its first fundraising event in December 2020 at Machiavelli Restaurant.

As a result, they have made another remarkably generous donation of $100,000 to the Head and Neck Cancer Foundation.

Some of this money will be used to fund ongoing research projects in the development of patient-centric, novel therapies for Head and Neck Cancer.

Intercurrently, one of our major goals is to raise $20,000,000 for the establishment of a freestanding university-affiliated world-first school of translational medicine in Otolaryngology, Head, and Neck Surgery.

We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of the Fordham Foundation and look forward to harmoniously working with them in the future.
