    Article - En anglais


    Su Vida, Su Salud/Your Life, Your Health is a community program to increase participation in breast and cervical cancer screening.

    This program illustrates the diffusion of an innovative outreach strategy from a research environment to two local health departments.

    The program uses A Su Salud, the communication model in which positive role models are featured in the media, and community volunteers who give positive social reinforcement.

    Local health departments in Galveston and Corpus Christi, TX, were selected to implement the model because of excessive mortality rates in the region and the departments' adequate level of resources and commitment.
