Study Information

Variations in the Health Needs of Breast Cancer Survivors

This study at Boston University is looking at the impact sexual orientation has on breast cancer survivorship. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 30 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on June 10, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment on October 6, 2009, after the Army of Women provided them with 168 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
