In the last year, two new diseases have emerged with significant and lasting impact on the lung: E-cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury (EVALI) and COVID-19 pneumonia. This session will address new information and challenges related to both diseases. Vaping has increased in popularity, especially among youth, and in late 2019, EVALI was first described. While the outbreak has subsided, recognition of the symptoms, association with marijuana use, and radiographic findings of EVALI remain important. Further, providing tobacco and marijuana cessation guidance remains critical. The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by SARS-Cov2 virus, has burdened healthcare workers and scientists across the globe. COVID-19, often associated with severe pneumonia and systemic illness, has resulted in significant morbidity and mortality in the US and we can continue to learn and discover its full impact. Additionally, COVID-19 has unmasked major health disparities in our healthcare system that we must address.
