The research team conducted six focus groups with 42 Spanish-speaking, Latinos of Mexican descent (consumers), two focus groups within the Spanish-speaking promotoras and six in-depth interviews with nurse practitioners. Groups explored the feasibility and acceptability of a potential mHealth application using visual communication, testing multiple visual design elements including non-textual representations (e.g. icons, pictograms, animation, and videos).
