Exploring Latina College Students’ Involvement with Tanning and Skin Cancer Messages

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This exploratory focus group study used the situational theory of publics (STP) to examine the skin cancer-related attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors of Latina college students. The findings reported provide insight into the motivations for tanning behaviors that put these women at risk for skin cancer; highlight how underserved Latinas are by current skin cancer prevention campaigns; identify the need for culturally specific campaigns for this audience group; and suggest numerous directions for future research.
