BACHAC: Women of Color Can Write the Next Chapter in Breast Cancer Research
Read about Dr. Laura Esserman’s collaboration with the Athena Breast Health Network to change the truth with the WISDOM (Women Informed to Screen Depending On Measures of risk) study in a recent Bay Area Community Health Advisory Council (BACHAC) blog entry. The plan for the national study includes recruitment of 100,000 women, ages forty to seventy-four, with an emphasis on ensuring that women of color, who have been traditionally disenfranchised from receiving adequate medical care, are accurately represented. The study will be conducted over the course of five years and include a risk-based assessment comprised of a breast health questionnaire, genetic testing, and a breast density measurement. The goal of the study is to tailor more screening to those who are most at-risk for aggressive cancers, and safely reduce screening for those who are at lower risk, to prevent over-diagnosis and over-treatment.
