Interview: Understanding the Experiences of Black Women after Cancer Genetic Testing

About the Study

We are looking to interview Black women who have received a positive result in a cancer-associated genetic test. We want to hear your story. This research will look at Black women's experiences with cancer genetic testing.

What the Study Entails

If you decide to take part in the study, you would participate in an approximately hour-long interview over Zoom. You would answer some questions about your experiences during and after genetic testing. You would be asked to provide some demographic information. To compensate you for your time, you would receive a $20 gift card.
