Study Aims to Increase Cancer Screenings Among Rural Women

Women in rural areas are more likely to get certain cancers, but research experts at The James are working to change that with something called the RISE study. The new study tests two different interventions to help to increase breast, cervical and colon cancer screenings for women in rural areas of Ohio and Indiana. The goal is to identify what specific barriers exist for these women when it comes to getting necessary screenings – whether it’s location, screening availability, or other factors. James research expert Electra Paskett, PhD, shares that they would like to enroll 1000+ women, ages 50-74, in the study, and those interested can call toll-free, 877-304-2273, or email RISE@osumc.edu, to see if they are eligible to be included.
