CDC OSH Reflections: 60 Years of Surgeon General’s Reports on Smoking and Health

From CDC Office on Smoking and Health

CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health commemorates the 60th anniversary of the 1964 Surgeon General’s Report:  Smoking and Health.  This landmark report is considered by historians as one of the most significant public health achievements of the 20th century.

In honor of this anniversary, a retrospective (attached) has been developed.  This reflective piece provides insights from just a few of the many individuals who have been instrumental in the creation of the Surgeon General’s reports.  Their reflections and thoughts convey a sense of pride and accomplishment, serving as a testament to the immense effort required to produce such influential documents.

CDC OSH would also like to seize this opportunity to acknowledge the invaluable role our partners have played in promoting these reports over the years.  Your support and collaboration have been crucial in amplifying their reach and impact, contributing significantly to our shared mission of public health.

Over the decades, the Surgeon General’s Reports have served as a beacon, shedding light on the science behind commercial tobacco prevention and control.  As we look to the future, these reports will continue to be a cornerstone of our efforts.
