Summary

The purpose of this study is to learn about the best ways to improve access to breast cancer care and treatment for members of the Black LGBQ-SGL community. The research team will enroll up to 30 participants for an in-depth phone interview about identities and healthcare experiences.  

What does participation involve?

If you agree to be in this study, the research team will contact you for a 60- to 90-minute phone interview. During this time, you will talk with a trained researcher about being Black LGBQ-SGL and accessing healthcare, including breast cancer screening and follow-up. If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, the researcher will also ask about your breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. You may also discuss race, sexual orientation, gender, and other personal identities. You will be compensated for your time.
