LSU Pennington Biomedical Research Center is looking to follow and survey patients diagnosed with breast cancer throughout the duration of their cancer treatment.
The CARE Research study aims to contribute to a better understanding of patient opinions toward potential lifestyle changes throughout cancer treatment.
More than 2.8 million women are affected by breast cancer in the United States, including those currently receiving treatment.
Research has led to advances in diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer, contributing to a steady increase in survival rates. With these advances, researchers are also looking at the physical and mental changes women may undergo during cancer treatment.
NUMBER OF VISITS
Study participants will visit Pennington Biomedical four times over the course of six to nine months for assessment and observation.
Total compensation for the completion of this study is $120. If you are interested in volunteering for this research study, call Dr. Anne Gilmore at 225-763-2848 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
