While cancer screening tests are available, Latinos are screened at a lower rate than non-Hispanic whites. This study looked at the effectiveness of an evidence-based community health worker (CHW) intervention which was designed to increase screening rates, knowledge about screening guidelines and awareness about benefits of early detection. The project involved community and clinic-based components primarily targeted at Latino populations.
