Participate in Research
Women´s Health Research at Vanderbilt promotes the health and well-being of women everywhere by getting answers to questions that matter. Your participation in research can help to foster the discovery of new methods for preventing and treating disease. The following Vanderbilt Women´s Health Research studies are seeking participants:
The Breast Cancer Adjuvant Therapy cohort study was created to help breast cancer survivors. The study is designed to measure joint pain, quality of life, and medication adherence among postmenopausal women taking adjuvant hormone therapy to prevent breast cancer recurrence, but we also need women who have been through menopause but not been diagnosed with breast cancer. The goal is to improve quality of life and medication adherence in breast cancer survivors. Women will be asked to complete surveys or interviews and may be asked allow for the collection of biologic specimens. Women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer OR who have not been diagnosed with breast cancer who are interested in finding out should contact the study at 1.800.811.8480 (toll free).
