Press Release

The Next 50 Years

For more than fifty years, the Surgeon General has been reporting about the dangers of smoking and tobacco use. The findings have inspired us to help smokers quit and keep young people from starting smoking in the first place. We know the strategies that work and we are in the forefront of an historic opportunity to end the tobacco epidemic. If we work together, we can save millions of lives.
