  1. Peer discussions of cancer among hispanic migrant farm workers.

    Article - En anglais

    Hispanic migrant agricultural workers'exposure to pesticides and other agrichemicals places them at increased risk for a variety of acute and chronic conditions, including cancer.

    As a socioeconomically disadvantaged group, migrant workers also face many barriers to effective cancer control.

    In 1992, a series of focus groups was held with 55 Hispanic migrant agricultural workers (22 women, 33 men) in central Wisconsin to gather information on their knowledge and attitudes regarding cancer etiology and treatment, their practices regarding cancer screening and early detection, and their concerns regarding occupational exposure to pesticides.
