Priority Populations Overview

The SD Tobacco Control Program (TCP) aims to prevent youth and young adults from starting and becoming addicted to tobacco products. Additionally, there are several population groups in South Dakota who want to quit using commercial tobacco but struggle due to factors that may be out of their control. The TCP and the South Dakota QuitLine prioritize these groups by offering services and programs that address their specific challenges and needs.
