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.
