Study Information
Protocol for Narrowing the Gap in Adjuvant Therapy (GAP Study)

This study at Georgetown University, in Washington, DC, was designed to better understand the differences in breast cancer treatment experiences between African-American women and white women. The researchers wanted to enroll at least 400 African-American women and 400 white women. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Love Research Army members on April 3, 2009. When the researchers closed enrollment on August 2, 2011, the Love Research Army had provided them with 239 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
