Study: Latino Men Want Specific, Accessible Health Info
In focus groups, researchers found that Latino men wanted health information to be more specific and in an accessible format, according to a new study.
Latino men also sought more Spanish-speaking health care providers and were interested in low-cost health care.
Prevention was not of much interest to participants in the study, and church-attending participants were interested in church-based health education. Researchers in the study were investigating Latino males’ health concerns, barriers, motivators, and access to health information and health services.
Findings were reported in a scientific article, “A needs assessment of Latino men’s health concerns,” published recently in the American Journal of Men’s Health.
