Specific Cancers Affecting Hispanics in the United States
- 30 Downloads
As we examine the health of Hispanics in the U.S., one key point is that Hispanic people are not a homogeneous group in this country but present a number of areas of diversity—different countries of origin, different cultural experiences, different numbers of years in the United States, different socioeconomic backgrounds, different experiences in dealing with the health care systems, different reasons for being in the United States, and different reasons for wanting to stay. Thus, we must bear these complexities in mind when we talk about health issues in relation to Hispanic populations.
