Title: Training Lead
The Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) has authority under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act to regulate the manufacture, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products to protect public health. The health risks of tobacco are not solely dependent on the measurable toxicity of tobacco products, but also on the way the products are used and on factors that promote or limit use.
