Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, v9 n1-2 p97-117 2000
A smoking prevention program for Hispanic immigrants in Canada was based on participatory community planning, cultural sensitivity, and a comprehensive health philosophy. After 12 educational sessions, participating children aged 8-14 engaged in more community activism and showed decreased intentions to smoke. Parents, children, and staff were highly satisfied with the program's impact and delivery process. (Contains 46 references.) (Author/TD)
