The National African American Tobacco Prevention Network (NAATPN) is one of six CDC funded networks that engages national and statewide partners by providing technical assistance in tobacco control and prevention activities. In its role, NAATPN maintains and strengthens its national network by:
· educating and sharing information about tobacco's history, facts, and prevalence
· assessing the impact of tobacco within disparate populations
· identifying gaps in data, interventions and/or research involving African Americans and tobacco use
NAATPN's National Network is open to any individual or organization that is willing to assist in decreasing the impact of tobacco in Black communities.
