San Antonio Latino cancer survivors, we need you! 


Are you a Latino cancer survivor? Avanzando Caminos is a clinical trial that aims to enroll 1,500 Latino cancer survivors in South Texas to help unpack the social, cultural, behavioral, mental, biological and medical influences on post-cancer life. The study, led by Amelie Ramirez, DrPH, MPH, of UT Health San Antonio and the Mays Cancer Center, home to UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center, is looking for Latino survivors ages 18 and older who have completed primary treatment for breast, colon, kidney, liver, lung, prostate, stomach or cervical cancer in the past 10 years.

Volunteers will participate in seven study visits over five years, each with assessment interviews and some with blood draws. To volunteer for Avanzando Caminos or ask questions, contact Ramirez’s team at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio at 210-562-6514 or Volunteers are eligible for $50 per visit!
