Special interest project (SIP) by the UCSF PRC: Small Media Interventions for Limited English Speakers or SMILES

Special interest project (SIP) update: "Small Media Interventions for Limited English Speakers (SMILES)"

SMILES will test multilingual materials (brochure, website, videos, and a mobile app) among Chinese Americans to promote colorectal cancer screening in San Francisco! This randomized controlled trial will show that in-language materials can improve screening and that community organizations can work with healthcare systems to improve care.
