Study Information

Quality of Life in Latina Breast Cancer Survivors

This study at Georgetown University is investigating how cultural factors influence quality of life in Latina breast cancer survivors. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 100 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on December 17, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment on January 5, 2010, after the Army of Women provided them with 125 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
