Culturally Proficient Strategies to Improve Cervical Cancer Screening Among Hispanics (March 7, 2016)

This webinar reviewed the priority areas of cancer control for Hispanics, and introduced examples of culturally proficient interventions and campaigns designed to increase screening rates for cervical cancer and vaccinations for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Highlighted examples included the Tamale Lesson, a narrative health communication intervention designed for Mexican-American women that promotes cervical cancer screening and prevention, and the Es Tiempo campaign which uses environmental cues to remind women and their children to prevent cervical cancer through screening and vaccination. Coordinated by the Nuestras Voces Network, the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACCD), this webinar included an overview of Network priorities and opportunities for collaboration.

The webinars and webisodes below are from the TEAM Lab website:

TEAM Lab Webisode Series – Best Practices for Testing Materials

TEAM Lab has developed a webisode series about pretesting your tobacco control materials. There are five webisodes that are each about 10-20 minutes in length. The best part about webisodes is that you don’t need to watch them all at once or in any specific order, unless you want to. Basically, the viewer is able to pick and choose which part they would like to learn about without having to view them all or in any specific order.
