To build capacity in Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities by supporting culturally competent leadership development, education and policy change for social and health equity.
Working together to promote healthy Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities.
- Community leaders from community-based agencies and faith-based organizations
- Representatives from health clinics, state/county health departments, and research centers
Building Community Capacity: We provide resources, leadership development training, and education to our partners, who can then mobilize their respective communities to address health disparities issues.
Youth Leadership & Self-Empowerment: We value youth involvement by supporting leadership development and educational activities.
Education: We educate our partners about all aspects of tobacco, e-cigarettes/vapes and marijuana, so that they may share this knowledge with others in their communities. These aspects include:
- Harmful effects to smoker
- Harmful effects of second-hand smoking
- Cessation resources
- Media literacy
- Current regulations
When possible, we also provide education on healthy nutrition, active living, childhood obesity and other health disparity issues.
