Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is the 9th leading cause of cancer-related death in the US and is one of the few cancers with an increasing incidence and mortality rate.  Texas has the second highest HCC rate in the country and HCC is the fastest growing cancer in the state.  The ReACH Center and UT Southwestern Medical Center through the support of the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) have partnered on the Screen Treat or Prevent Hepatocellular Carcinoma (STOP HCC) initiative which aims to reduce HCC incidence and mortality in Texas by implementing an evidence-based hepatitis c virus (HCV) screening and treatment program for low-income populations in primary care settings across South Texas and the Dallas regions.

On Friday, March 31st, Dr. Barbara J. Turner, the Director of the Center for Research to Advance Community Health (ReACH) was featured on the Texas Public Radio show Texas Standard to discuss a recently published study that looks at how much the Hispanic community knows about chronic pain.  

Hispanics’ knowledge of chronic pain shows gaps

Hispanics and other minorities are more likely to receive poor quality of care for chronic pain. A new survey of Hispanics’ knowledge about chronic pain reveals that, even with the painkiller-related deaths of celebrities such as Prince and Heath Ledger, most know little about chronic pain and its care, leaving them vulnerable to repeat the dangerous painkiller cycle.
