Weaving an Islander Network for Cancer Awareness, Research, and Training (WINCART) is a Community Network Program (CNP) Center funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) at California State University, Fullerton. The WINCART Center is comprised of six community based organizations and researchers from three universities with the goal of reducing disparities in cancer incidence and mortality among Chamorro, Marshallese, Native Hawaiian, Samoan, Tongan, and other Pacific Islanders (PIs) in Southern California. Based on the principles of community-based participatory research, the WINCART Center conducts research, training, implementation and evaluation of community  education to promote beneficial biomedical and behavioral procedures. Current WINCART Center research foci are (1) tobacco cessation intervention research with late adolescent and young adult PIs in Southern California, (2) attitudes toward the collection of biospecimens among PI adults, and (3) culturally tailored health promotion regarding obesity and physical activity. The WINCART Center partners include: California State University Fullerton, Claremont Graduate University, Guam Communications Network, Samoan National Nurses Association, Tongan Community Service Center/Special Service for Groups, Orange County Asian and Pacific Islander Community Alliance, Pacific Islander Health Partnership, Union of Pan Asian Communities, and the University of Southern California.
