Organizer

Minority Research Center on Tobacco & Addictions

In 2011, leadership of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff 15% Set-A-Side Committee implemented the vision of a facility that would house information and best practices regarding the impact of tobacco and addictions within minority communities. This effort became the Minority Research Center on Tobacco & Addictions, a clearinghouse for research on tobacco and other substance abuse, especially in regard to minority communities (Blacks, Hispanics, Marshall Islanders, and Asians).
