• There are approximately 48 Million Latinx living in the United States. 4.8 million Latinx 20 years of age and older have been diagnosed with Diabetes.

• More than 30% of the total Latinx population have no health insurance.

• Hispanics (47%) had the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity

• New cases of cervical cancer was highest among Hispanic women (9.4 per 100,00)

• 25% more likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer

• Hispanic women are less likely to be screened for breast cancer than non-Hispanic women due to a range of social, cultural and economic barriers-and this contributes to the disproportionate prevalence of advanced-stage breast cancer in this population. (From for Health Equity, Yan Li on Reducing Cancer Disparities).
