Cancer has long overtaken heart disease as the top killer of Latinos.
Latinos have higher rates than their peers for many cancers. Latinos also experience cancer differently—from genetics to the environment to healthcare access.
To raise awareness on World Cancer Day (Feb. 4), let’s use #SaludTues on Feb. 4, 2020, to tweet about the latest progress in cancer research, the importance of cancer screening, and tips for prevention and survivorship!
- WHAT: #SaludTues Tweetchat: Let’s Say No to Cancer
