Latina Breast Cancer Initiative

Who is conducting the study?

Annette Stanton, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles, and Betina Yanez, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles

Description from the Army of Women site

In an effort to find the best way to help medical providers and Latinas diagnosed with breast cancer, researchers have developed a study to investigate Latinas’ experience with cancer. The focus of this study is on quality of life and the psychological adjustment after breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. You don’t have to leave your house to participate! Interviews can be conducted in English or Spanish. A total of 150 women are needed for this study.

You can sign up for this study if you match all of these main categories:

  • You were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer (Stages I-IV) within the past 12 months
  • You self-identify as Latina/Hispanic
  • This is the first time you have been diagnosed with breast cancer
  • You have never been diagnosed with another cancer (skin cancer is OK)
  • You are over 18 years old
  • You are able to speak and understand English OR Spanish
  • You live in the United States

Whether you have breast cancer or not, be sure to share with other women by tweeting or e-mailing this post. The Internet helps us easily share messages with others, so please take advantage of this great medium.
