Rick Strickland with participants in the Latino Outreach Project

Latino Program

CHDI’s Latino outreach efforts are growing, with plans to develop an ongoing Latino Program.  The overarching goal of this program would be to provide sustainable cancer outreach, education, and research in partnership with Latino communities within UWCCC’s service area.  The program objectives are:

  1. Promote healthy behaviors and cancer awareness
  2. Increase the effectiveness of culturally relevant cancer education within Latino communities
  3. Increase Latino cancer patients’ access to timely and appropriate screening, treatment, supportive care, and clinical trials
