  • Women’s Circle of Health Study
    The Women’s Circle of Health Study is an inclusive breast cancer study that evaluates the causes of an early age and more aggressive breast cancer in black women. The study is a collaborative effort between Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, the New Jersey State Cancer Registry, and Rutgers School of Public Health. Participants are recruited in 10 counties throughout NJ. In 2014, with additional funding from NCI, the study was enhanced and redesigned as a cohort study of Black breast cancer survivors. This follow-up study evaluates the impact of obesity and related comorbidities, or other chronic disease conditions, which are seen in high amounts in this population, it also looks at quality of life, patient-reported outcomes, and survival.
