Breast Cancer, Race and Place

The BCRP research study will include interviews with women living in Milwaukee and surrounding counties about their personal stories of breast cancer survivorship. Participants will discuss the people, places and experiences important to them as breast cancer survivors. Study participants will be compensated with incentives.

Over 100 women are expected to participate in this study from Milwaukee, Kenosha, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington, and Waukesha counties. 

The study is funded by the National Cancer Institute.
