Redes En Acción receives $5.6 million in federal funding

After a decade of success reducing Latino cancer through research, training and education, locally based Redes En Acción: The National Hispanic/Latino Cancer Research Network has received a new $5.6 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to bolster and expand its cancer-fighting efforts. The new grant will bolster Redes’ efforts through 2015 and pave the way for two new studies: a large-scale study to test novel strategies to improve Latino cancer survivors’ quality of life and a pilot study of an Internet-based tobacco cessation service. Redes En Acción, launched in 2000, is led by the Institute for Health Promotion Research.
