  1. Effect of social networks on cancer-screening behavior of older Mexican-American women.

    Article - En anglais

    Background :

    Previous studies have determined that Hispanic women and, in particular, Mexican-American women have the lowest rates of cancer screening of any race and ethnic group in the United States.

    In the development of cancer control strategies for this population, little attention has been given to factors that encourage Mexican-American women to seek cancer preventive care.

    Recent studies suggest that social networks can have a positive influence on cancer-screening participation.
