Through collaborations, training and technical assistance, the NLTCN empowers people to engage in our tobacco control network and build capacity to achieve a healthy body. NLTCN is one of the six National Tobacco Control funded by the Office of Alchohol and Tobacco Control to serve specific populations experiencing tobacco-related disparities. Primary goals are to prevent people from overusing tobacco and control the distribution of tobacco around the Latin Countries.

If you are interested in helping to raise awareness about health disparities, and you would like to learn more about evidence-based programs and approaches to reduce tobacco use and improve wellness and health in Latino communities, we hope that you will become an NLTCN member. National Latino Tobacco Control Network is open to all, and membership benefits include action alerts, newsletters highlighting developments in tobacco control from a health disparities perspective.

For your technical assistance needs, we invite you to connect with the nationally recognized tobacco control and health disparities experts and advocates listed in our National Directory and on our Consultants page. Please see the map below to learn more about organizations represented on our Steering Committee (click on the red dots) as well as other organizations with which we have collaborated around the country. As you scroll on the map, please click on the states highlighted in orange. If you need any additional information about our team, you can contact us. We respond in a short time, and we are glad that you are interested in our community.
