Dr. Susan Love recently hosted a webinar called “A Researcher’s Guide to the Army of Women” to help scientists better understand how to leverage the Army of Women initiative in their breast cancer research.
What is the Army of Women?
The Army of Women initiative, a program of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, funded by a grant from the Avon Foundation for Women, is recruiting one million women of all ages and ethnicities, with or without breast cancer, to sign up and participate in breast cancer research studies. Women interested in learning about studies sign up at www.armyofwomen.org.
Currently, the Army of Women has more than 352,000 women and men (~80% without a history of breast cancer) from throughout the country, eager to hear about YOUR study.
After signing up at www.armyofwomen.org, members are then contacted via email blast to participate in groundbreaking, breast cancer prevention research studies. They can either sign-up for the studies online, or if they do not qualify, they are encouraged to forward the information to a friend or family member. Every woman over 18 is welcome to participate, whether a breast cancer survivor or someone never affected.
In the webinar, Dr. Love gives researchers more background on the Army of Women, walks you through the application and review processes, and how recruitment through the Army of Women is conducted.
