ASU faculty publish study on breast cancer education
Several ASU faculty members recently saw publication of their northeast Arkansas community study, "Effects of a Culturally Sensitive Education Program on the Breast Cancer Knowledge and Beliefs of Hispanic Women," in the journal Oncology Nursing Forum. The article evaluated the effectiveness of a multifaceted, culturally sensitive, and linguistically appropriate breast cancer education program for Hispanic women, who have a higher breast cancer mortality rate than non-Hispanic Caucasian women, due in part to later diagnosis. Appropriate education programs can lead to earlier diagnosis and save lives. The faculty authors of the study were Cathy Hall, Nursing, Dr. John D. Hall, Psychology and Counseling, Judith T. Pfriemer, Nursing, Paige D. Wimberley, Nursing, and Dr. Craig H. Jones, Psychology and Counseling.
