Study Review

The purpose of this study was to learn about the best ways to improve access to breast cancer care and treatment for members of the Black LGBQ-SGL community. The research team wanted to enroll up to 30 participants for an in-depth phone interview about identities and healthcare experiences.

The initial Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on January 17, 2018 and the researchers closed enrollment on October 29, 2019. The AOW provided them with 6 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
