Greater Denver Latino Cancer Prevention/Control Network

The Latino Research and Policy Center at the University of Colorado at Denver, built a network infrastructure among community-based Latino organizations, health clinics, social service agencies, school-based clinics, faith-based groups, and employee-based organizations serving Latinos in the greater Denver metropolitan area. The network's infrastructure for cancer awareness, education, and pilot research projects was based on existing relationships and ongoing intervention and education activities. Activities were focused on breast, cervical, prostate, colorectal, and lung cancers.
