Tobacco Prevention

Tobacco Prevention Program

The Asian Health and Service Center’s Public Health Program provides culturally and linguistically appropriate public health and social services to support the community’s health and well-being. The program aims to create a healthier, more resilient, and equitable future for all through community engagement and collaboration by empowering individuals with the necessary tools and knowledge to lead healthier lives.

The Commercial Tobacco Prevention Program is one of the Public Health programs supported through the OHA Health Equity Grant. Our aim is to raise awareness and tackle public health issues linked to tobacco use. To achieve this, AHSC will implement culturally tailored engagement, outreach, and education programs. Our focus is to encourage participation in discussions about tobacco use and prevention among local Tri-County Asian communities.

2023 – Tobacco Prevention Project:
Youth Volunteer Event

AHSC invited Portland high school volunteers to create a tobacco prevention campaign. They learned about the harmful effects of tobacco and how it targets their community through ads. Using their creativity, they developed a culturally relevant campaign for Asian American youth. We’re grateful for their efforts in raising awareness for a tobacco-free world. See what they made!
