The National Alliance for Hispanic Health’s Nuestras Voces (Our Voices) Network Program is an initiative of the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention Networking2Save consortium of national networks.

Nuestras Voces Network is working to reduce the threats of commercial tobacco use and the impact of cancers in Hispanic communities. We do this by working with states, providing technical assistance, conducting webinar trainings, and developing and disseminating resources throughout our many networks. Specifically, we have:

  • Provided technical assistance to seven state cancer programs and coalitions;

  • Worked with the New Mexico tobacco control program to develop training tools on tobacco control in Spanish for promotores de salud (community health workers);

  • Conducted webinar trainings on interventions and best practices for tobacco/cancer control for Hispanics, e.g., "Beyond Translation: Reaching Hispanic Communities with Effective Tobacco Cessation Messaging Campaigns;"   

  • With the Ventanillas de Salud (Health Section of the Mexican Consulate) and the US -Mexico Border Health Commission, we convened and hosted the webinar "Hablemos sobre los cánceres ginecológicos (Let’s talk about gynecological cancers);" and,

  • Developed and disseminated a bilingual infographic on breast cancer as well as InfoCards on tobacco and cancer-related topics such as gynecologic cancers.
