The Health of Women (HOW) Study®

The Health of Women (HOW) Study is a first-of-its-kind international online study for women and men with and without a history of breast cancer. The study is designed to examine causes, treatment, and prevention of breast cancer. The majority of women who get breast cancer have none of the known clinical risk factors. This means we don't know what causes breast cancer or how to prevent it. Rather than use the traditional research approaches, we are harnessing the power of information technology and internet-based tools to create a new and potentially more effective way to conduct research on breast cancer. We believe this is a powerful 21st century approach that combines science, medicine, information technology, and consumer empowerment.
