Karen E. Callahan (Environmental and Occupational Health) recently co-wrote and published a chapter on "Disaggregated Hispanic Groups and Cancer: Importance, Methodology, and Current Knowledge" in the book Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos

The chapter summarizes the current knowledge on cancer in Hispanics, with a focus on the imperative of disaggregating by specific Hispanic group (Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Central Americans, South Americans, and Dominicans) and nativity. It also describes for the first time some major methodological challenges in determining accurate cancer indicators for specific Hispanic groups and suggests approaches to overcome these hurdles.
