Abstract

Information describing the health status of the Spanish-speaking population, the nation's second largest minority, is extremely scarce. In particular, few studies have attempted to document the prevalence or ascertain the extent of treatment or the level of public awareness of hypertension or other cardiovascular diseases in this minority population. However, before any large scale effort to determine the prevalence or to determine the treatment and awareness needs related to hypertension is initiated, preliminary questions concerning how to reach and motivate the Spanish-speaking population to adopt cardiovascular health risk-reducing behaviors must be answered.
