The Role of Family History and Culture in Communal Coping Within Mexican American Families

The family culture for the Mexican American community provides an important environment within which individuals will read their health information, share health data, and identify tips for participating in health promotion behaviors. Participants for the current project will be recruited from an ongoing population-based cohort of Mexican American households enrolled by the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The results will enable us to see if the family-centered feedback strategy, rather than the individual-focused feedback approach, encourages discussions of family health issues. To minimize risks, medical risk feedback will be randomized as to whether they receive disease risk information only or disease risk data along with personalized recommendations for behavior change to minimize risks. These findings will help us to investigate the effects of the prevention and control of common diseases based on the CDC's family health history tool Family Healthware's beliefs. Cross comparisons between the results obtained from who collects the medical risk information and the content of that report will help in determining the role of diseases and symptoms of family involvement in the development of shared perceptions of risk and strategies to implement health promotion activities within the family. The role of the familial and cultural context in the communication and strategy design process will also be investigated.

Promoting Genetic Counseling Among African American Women With a Family History of Breast Cancer

The investigator will perform a single-blind placebo controlled trial to determine the success of a culturally targeted decision aid video to promote genetic counseling among African Americans who are at a high risk of breast cancer through cancer genetic risk assessment. Patients will perform a cancer genetic risk assessment as part of intake on a tablet computer owned by the front desk clinic staff as part of the standard of care. Patients will be greeted, informed of the study, screen participants, and obtain informed consent for women who want to enroll. Following the results of the questionnaire, patient navigators will ask women if they would like to make an appointment for genetic testing, contact the manufacturer for the order if not already in the EMR, make genetic counseling sessions for women who wish to attend, monitor and gather follow-up information after completion.
