STATEWIDE COLLEGE CONFERENCE
Each year, CYAN hosts a statewide conference for students, staff, and tobacco control professionals working on smoke/tobacco-free policy adoption, implementation, and enforcement. The conference provides individuals an opportunity to learn from others working on similar initiatives and network with partners from across the state. The 2019 conference will be held in Los Angeles on January 8th - 9th.
DAYS OF ACTION
CYAN promotes two Statewide Days of Action, the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November, and Earth Day on April 22nd. Each Day of Action is designed to encourage quit attempts and provide advocates with an opportunity to bring attention to the issue of tobacco use on campus.
COUGH Student Leadership Board
COUGH (Campuses Organized and United for Good Health) is a statewide student-led coalition that partners with CYAN to increase the number of smoke/tobacco-free colleges and universities in California. COUGH is led by a Board of students from University of California, California State University, and California Community College campuses as well as private institutions of higher education. Student leaders provide guidance to CYAN’s College Program throughout the academic year.
