The Pima County Cervical Cancer Prevention Partnership identified priority health issues of cervical cancer, sexually transmitted infections, and depression as the three-fold focus of the grant's effort. According to lead researcher Dr. Francisco Garcia, Hispanics made up more than one-third of Pima County's population, with 20 percent of the adults lacking health insurance.
