Latinos Contra el Cancer is a joint project of The University of Texas School of Public Health (UTSPH) and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. We have a long history of working together and building on the strengths of both institutions.
The School of Public Health brings expertise in health promotion, intervention development and community-based participatory research. The established UT School of Public Health regional campuses in El Paso and Brownsville serve as regional sites of the project.
MD Anderson brings Mano a Mano, a Mexican-American cohort study, and expertise in addressing cancer-related risk behaviors such as tobacco cessation.
