The Forsyth County Cervical Cancer Prevention Project was a 5-year community-based health education program funded by the National Cancer Institute.
The program was developed to reduce cervical cancer mortality among black women in Forsyth County, and it was targeted to those ages 18 and older.
The program tried to educate the target population through a combination of mass media and direct education.
This paper reports on an experiment conducted to investigate sources of influence on the effectiveness of direct mail, a technique used to augment mass media health education.
Direct mail has shown promise as a method for reaching target populations that are difficult to reach with other mass media approaches.
