A research team at Johns Hopkins wants to learn how to improve access to follow-up care for women who get an abnormal breast cancer screening result. To learn what care women do or don’t get, the research team is having about 500 women who received abnormal results from a mammogram, breast MRI, or clinical breast exam or a diagnosis of breast cancer complete a 30-minute survey about their healthcare experiences.

The research team recruited for this study in July 2018 and enrolled more than 200 women. Most of the women who signed up to participate were White and heterosexual. To better assess healthcare experiences across populations, the research team is now looking for participants from other racial / ethnic groups and sexual orientations.
