The Statewide Pacific Islander Asian American Resource and Coordinating Center (SPARC) program, funded through the California Tobacco Control Program’s Statewide Coordinating Center grant, aims to foster interactive and integrative collaboration and communication among regional projects and others in the state working to reduce tobacco-related disparities among the diverse Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities.
Our 2019-2020 SPARC Leadership Program is underway! This year-long program is focused on building a vibrant movement in tobacco control and health advocacy in Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities. Throughout the program, more than 25 fellows will develop the knowledge, skills, and capacity needed to advocate and implement policy change in their communities.
