Project connects researchers, Latino communities to prevent cancer
Date:2/7/2011

mentored training program is to prepare new and early stage investigators to conduct cancer disparities research in Latino communities. An emphasis is on building skills and capacity to conduct community-based participatory research. Shine Chang, Ph.D., professor of Epidemiology at MD Anderson, is director of the training core.

Wetter, Bondy, Fernandez, and Jones lead the administrative core to provide strategic leadership, oversight and support for the project.

Outreach: Understanding and engaging community partners

The goal of the project's outreach program is to increase the use of evidence-based cancer control interventions in communities by building on existing community partnerships, infrastructure and programs.

Fernandez, the principal investigator of the outreach core, says "There is a tremendous amount of knowledge, experience and expertise in the community that needs to be tapped into if we're going to have a real impact."

The outreach program will have three phases:

  • Develop a community network and regional advisory groups in Houston, El Paso and the lower Rio Grande Valley.
  • Conduct an assessment of community needs and resources. Using the Texas 2-1-1 call system in Houston, Weslaco and El Paso, a survey will be conducted to analyze cancer risks among callers. The 2-1-1 call system provides free and confidential information and referrals for help with food, housing, employment, health care, counseling and more.
  • Delivery of effective cancer control programs in Houston, El Paso and the lower Rio Grande Valley.

Ultimately, these partnerships and community participation will help bridge the gap between what we know works to prevent and control cancer and what is actually benefiting Latino communities.
