The urban church and cancer control : a source of social influence in minority communities.
A study was conducted to examine the efficacy of a church-based model of social influence in improving access to and participation of underserved minoriry women in a cervical cancer control program.
The model expanded on strategies used in previous hypertension control and health promotion research.
A total of 24 churches, stratified by faith tradition, were randomly selected to participate in the cancer control program from a pool of 63 churches in a defined geographic area of Los Angeles County, CA.
Female parishioners ages 21 years and older were eligible to participate in cervical cancer education sessions, and screening was offered to adult women who had not had Papanicolaou tests within the last 2 years.
