Here's another new piece. I'll be submitting to Latinas Contra Cancer  -  Latinas Fighting Cancer. Latinas Contra Cancer is raising awareness about cancer in the Latino community, increasing access to quality care, working to decrease mortality and improving the quality of the health care experience. They do this by offering support services and resources for the Latino cancer patient and their family; collaborate with other small agencies to provide education and outreach services; partner with health care institutions to bridge the gap through culturally competent outreach and medical care.

Latinas Contra Cancer will convene its third bi-annual Latino/a Cancer Summit. The Summit will focus on the environment  and Cancer and its impact on Latinos from Science to Social Justice. There will be an art exhibit and auction so I'm submitting some artwork for consideration. We'll see what happens!

Here's my latest work for submission to the summit with the theme centering on the dangers of excessive sun exposure and the high rates of skin cancer among Latinos. 

What to do: shade is a good deterrent against UV rays!
