Vaping Stigma in the Philippines: Why Filipinos are Confused About the Vaping vs Smoking Situation
Dr. Lorenzo Mata, Jr. is the current president of Quit For Good, a non-stock, non-profit organization committed to spreading awareness about the grave consequences of smoking tobacco as well as creating solutions to the tobacco smoking epidemic. As a veteran medical practitioner and family health doctor, Dr. Lorenz actively promotes sustainable and tangible solutions to the rampant smoking of combustible tobacco cigarettes in the Philippines. He believes that by further informing the public about this widespread problem as well as creating science-based public policy (and, of course, the effective implementation of such), we may, as a country, achieve the complete cessation of tobacco smoking.
