The Army Of Women Is Recruiting

The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is looking for women willing to participate in research studies.

The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation’s Army of Women is teaming up with researchers across the country to change the conversation about breast cancer research and to eradicate the disease once and for all.

The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation launched the Army of Women in October 2008.  It is a unique opportunity for women to be part of breast cancer research studies aimed at determining the causes of breast cancer – and how to prevent it.

The goal of the Army of Women is to recruit one million women of all ages and ethnicities, including breast cancer survivors and women who have never had breast cancer, who are willing to participate in a variety of research studies.

The Army of Women has recently partnered with the Boston University School of Public Health for the Variations in Health Needs of Breast Cancer Survivors Study.  The research team is looking to interview 600 lesbian or bisexual women nationwide who have had breast cancer or are currently dealing with the disease to understand the well-being and quality of life of these women.

The information will be gathered through simple phone interviews and used to develop programs and services that can specifically address these women’s quality of life.

Women who choose to join this study will be asked to take part in a phone survey that will last approximately 45 minutes. Questions about their health, medical history, demographics, and sexual orientation will be asked.
