Asian Pacific Partners for Empowerment, Advocacy, and Leadership (APPEAL) is a national health justice organization working to achieve health equity for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders and other underserved communities.

Our website offers valuable information and resources for community members and public health professionals who want to advance equity in tobacco control and healthy eating & active living within their communities.

This is an opportunity to celebrate the collaboration of priority populations in combating cancer and tobacco related health disparities.  

Especially pertinent for Health Departments and Community Coalitions!

This virtual web series will be an opportunity for both newer tobacco and cancer control advocates as well as those more experienced to participate and engage.
