Research Participation Opportunity: Improving Cancer Care for Black Women

Kemi Doll

University of Washington researcher Kemi Doll is starting a new research study focusing on improving healthcare for black women diagnosed with uterine cancer. Kemi and her team are looking to interview African American women who have been diagnosed with cancer in the lining of the uterus (also called endometrial cancer) about their experience with their cancer symptoms, diagnosis, and healthcare.

Any Black/African American woman over the age of 18 with a current or previous diagnosis of uterine cancer (also known as endometrial cancer) is eligible to participate. If you decide to join this study, you will participate in an interview with a member of the study team for up to 1 hour. Study participants will receive a $50 gift card to thank them for their participation.

If you are interested in participating or learning more, please contact Bridgette Hempstead, the project’s Lead Community Consultant, at (206) 579-4521, or Julianna Alson, Research Coordinator, at (206) 221-6109  or jalson@uw.edu.
