The Nuestras Voces Network works to save lives by reducing the threats of commercial tobacco use and the impact of cancers in Hispanic communities. We work with states and national, state, and local organizations. We provide technical assistance, conduct webinars, and develop and disseminate resources throughout our networks. Most important of all we provide tailored technical assistance to state cancer programs and coalitions. This means we:

  • Provide technical assistance to the system of Quitline providers to support their efforts with culturally proficient trainings and information. 

  • Conduct joint webinar trainings on interventions and best practices for tobacco and cancer control for Hispanics. Some recent webinars include: Community Led Efforts: Current Trends of E-cigs/Vaping & Youth with the APPEAL Network; Towards Ending the Confusion About Breast Cancer Screening with UCSF; Youth Engagement in Tobacco Control: Getting Started (Bilingual) with the GHEA Network, and Cervical Cancer: Early Detection Saves Lives with Duke Cancer Institute.

  • Develop and disseminate bilingual infographics on vaping, smoking, and COVID-19 and related topics.

  • Develop and disseminate bilingual InfoCards on a variety of topics. A recent InfoCard focused on encouraging people to get back to cancer screening practices for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer.

  • Track state and local policy that impact on tobacco use and cancer.
