Study Review

Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles are evaluating the effectiveness of a specially designed mindfulness meditation-based intervention on the psychological and behavioral functioning in women who are living with metastatic (stage IV) breast cancer. They used a variety of recruitment methods, including the Army of Women (AOW), to enroll up to 60 Los Angeles-area volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on Aug. 31, 2011. The researchers closed enrollment on April 4, 2014. The AOW provided them with 5 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.

We combat the disparities that exist in research by challenging the scientific community to launch studies that are as inclusive and diverse as the people that breast cancer affects.
