Study Information

Biobehavioral Contributors to Cognition in Breast Cancer Survivors

This study aimed to identify psychosocial and behavioral factors associated with inflammation that may contribute to cognitive thinking (memory, attention, and processing speed) problems following chemotherapy. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 50 volunteers from the Army of Women (AOW) from the greater Austin, Texas area. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on September 28, 2016. The researchers closed enrollment on May 5, 2017, after the AOW provided them with 82 volunteers who were interested in enrolling in the study. The research team published the findings from this study in The Breast.



Love Research Army

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.
