“This [report] is fantastic. This really tells the stories of policies that have successfully moved forward in our community. The recommendations and lessons learned are also very helpful. I can't believe all the nuances included. I'm so impressed to see our local tobacco control story so beautifully laid out. Thanks.”

—Director, San Mateo County Health Department
