Cancer Initiatives

The goal of APAMSA’s National Cancer Initiative is to promote awareness of and provide screening for the common cancers that affect Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders.

Our goals:

1. Encourage all chapters to complete at least one cancer-related educational or screening session in their community.

2. Provide funding for cancer-related workshops and activities.

3. Compile a list of useful cancer resources in various Asian languages on this website.

4. Maintain active partnership with the American Cancer Society.
