This study at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, is gathering data on breast satisfaction and quality of life in women who are not about to have breast surgery. These responses will be used as “normal” data to help researchers study breast satisfaction and quality of life in women who are about to have breast surgery. The researchers turned to the Army of Women (AOW) to enroll up to 3600 volunteers from anywhere in the US. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on Aug. 19, 2015. The researchers closed enrollment on Nov. 19, 2015, after the AOW provided them with 4326 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
