In this study, a total of 348 women participated, and two persons refused to participate. The result found no significant difference between recruited and non-recruited Latina women. The limitation of the study included lack of generalization to clinic populations different from those involved in the study. Another limitation was the length of the education sessions, low socioeconomic population.
