Tobacco use is the number one cause of preventable death in the United States and New Hampshire.  The Tobacco Prevention and Control Program (TPCP) is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and is dedicated to the implementation of a comprehensive program designed to reduce the prevalence and consumption of tobacco use in New Hampshire by educating the public and helping them quit smoking.
