SC Tobacco Partners was created for tobacco prevention and control stakeholders throughout the state to engage in monthly discussions.
Roundtable meetings are held virtually at 10:00am on the 4th Friday of the month (except May, November, and December) with different speakers and topics each month. Registration is required.
We will not meet in November or December of 2023 because of the holiday season.
Our next meeting is Friday, January 26, 2024 at 10:00am.

SC Tobacco Partners listserv is an online forum for SC tobacco prevention and control stakeholders to also share resources, information, programs, and events. Presentations given during the Roundtable meeting are also shared on the listserv.
