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 Love Research Army members on August 31, 2011. The researchers were able to close enrollment on May 8, 2012, after the Love Research Army provided them with 75 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.

We combat the disparities that exist in research by challenging the scientific community to launch studies that are as inclusive and diverse as the people that breast cancer affects.
