Asian Women Without Cancer

 

Who can participate?

Eligible participants will include Asian females who:

· Have not been diagnosed with cancer
· Have never smoked
· Are between the ages 40-90
· Live within the Greater Bay Area counties (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz).

Why should I participate?

It is important for us to include women without lung cancer in this study, so that we can compare to women who have developed lung cancer to identify potential risk factors. By participating, you will help us learn more about the factors leading to lung cancer in Asian women living in America. The findings of our study will be crucial for informing lung cancer prevention programs for future generations of Asian women. 

What does participation involve if I don't have lung cancer?

1. You will be asked to complete a survey that will take approximately 45 minutes. You can do this online, talking over the phone, or by mail.
2. You will be asked to collect a small saliva sample. This can be done in the privacy of your own home.

Will I be compensated?

Yes! To thank you for your time, you will be given a $50 gift card.
