Addressing Breast Cancer Equity


About this study

The purpose of this study is to test if a culturally tailored virtual navigation program (Second-Life) meet the needs of Black women in learning more about breast health and care for cancer prevention, and mammography screening. We are asking for feedback on the Second-Life experience to determine if the information is easy to understand, relevant, and valuable to the community. The goal is to develop virtual community navigation that helps Black women make informed decisions about their breast healthcare since Black women have high mortality rates from breast cancer compared to other races or ethnicities.
