APICAT coalition partners have been active for more than 10 years addressing tobacco prevention and control within the Asian American, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community by supporting culturally competent prevention, education, and cessation efforts with adults, youth, and families. We are also committed to eliminating health disparities impacting diverse communities. We continue to work together to face new challenges, including, emerging products (e-cigarettes/vapors) and the legalization of marijuana.

“Having the wonderful opportunity to work with APICAT has provided the most rewarding experiences and growth of my life.” – APICAT Partner, Strategic Planning Survey
