Study Information

A Mindfulness Meditation-Based Intervention for Younger Breast Cancer Survivors

This study at the University of California, Los Angeles, is evaluating the effectiveness of a specially designed mindfulness meditation-based intervention on psychological, behavioral, and biological functioning in women who were diagnosed with breast cancer before age 50. The researchers wanted to enroll 60 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on August 31, 2011. The researchers were able to close enrollment on May 8, 2012, after the Army of Women provided them with 75 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
