Share your thoughts!

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is looking for oncology professionals to take part in focus groups. 

A focus group is a group discussion where everyone shares what they know and their opinions about a specific topic.  These focus groups will discuss the needs of Black/African-American breast cancer survivors.

The information that we collect from the focus groups will help us learn more about what cancer survivors need.  It will also help us identify ways to improve the transition from cancer treatment to survivorship.

Compensation for participating

Participants will receive a $40 gift card for their time and if necessary, a small amount for transportation. The focus group will last less than 2 hours and be held in a location convenient for you.

How do I participate?

If you would like to participate or to find out more about this study, please contact: Rachel Malen at (206) 667-1409 or click here.
