The burden of cancer is often greater for the poor, ethnic minorities, and the uninsured than for the general population. To overcome these disparities, there is a need to identify and understand the contributing factors to develop and disseminate culturally appropriate interventions.  During October's NCI Research to Reality cyber-seminar, Dr. Patricia Miranda, Assistant Professor of Health Policy and Administration at Penn State University, will discuss her research on cancer disparities among  Latinos and the need for targeted communications and intervention.  Dr. Maria Fernandez, an associate professor of health promotion and behavioral sciences at The University of Texas-Houston, will also join us to share her collaborative work National Center for Farmworker Health and their adaptation and implementation of an evidence-based breast and cervical cancer program for a variety of settings in Texas. 

Join us as we  explore this important topic about the need for adapting and implementing culturally appropriate evidence-based programs!  

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss contributing factors to disparities in breast and cervical cancer screening for Latino sub-populations.
  • Describe an effort to adapt, disseminate, and implement evidence-based interventions tailored for Latino populations in Texas and lessons learned.
