The purpose of this study is to see how well two different types of group programs—mindfulness-meditation classes and survivorship education classes—meet the needs of young survivors. Up to 360 women were needed for this study.
The initial Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on May 3, 2017 and the researchers closed enrollment in August of 2019. The AOW provided them with 358 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
