Abstract
Past research has shown that Hispanics in the United States feel stronger ties of obligation to their families than non-Hispanics. To test the effectiveness of appeals to familism, we developed two silicosis prevention brochures that differed only in the mention of family in the text and the inclusion of photos of families. Hispanic and non Hispanic construction workers in three Texas cities were randomly assigned to read the one of the brochures or to be in a no-brochure control condition. Their knowledge, attitudes, and intentions regarding silicosis prevention behaviors were measured. Results, implications, and limitations are discussed.
