September 26th will mark the 1st annual North American Chinatown Smoke Free Day. Reducing the high prevalence of smoking among Chinese immigrant men is a top health concern in Chinese communities across the US and Canada. The quit rate for Asian American males i far lower than all other ethnic groups. The goal of the one-day event is to raise awareness and mobilize local communities to take action. Cities that will be participating in the 1st Annual North American Chinatown Smoke Free Day will be New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, and Toronto. Working together we hope to help reduce smoking in Chinese communities in North America and eliminate this disparity.
