Proposed Project

Formative Research on Issues Related to the Use of Mass Media in African American Women—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


Women's health programs, including the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), offer low-cost or free breast cancer screening to uninsured, low-income women. In 1991, CDC established the NBCCEDP to increase breast and cervical cancer screening among uninsured, underserved, low-income women. To date, over 1.5 million women have received services from NBCCEDP-sponsored programs. Yet NBCCEDP-sponsored programs are estimated to reach only 18% of women 50 years old and older who are eligible for screening services. A research priority for the NBCCEDP is to identify effective strategies to increase enrollment among eligible women who have never received breast or cervical cancer screening. Why women do not participate in this screening is not well understood.

The purpose of this task is to conduct formative research to better understand how low-income African-American women might use TV/radio as sources of health information and identify the particular formats, programs, stations, and hours the targeted women listen. This task will examine how African-American women get information on community issues, services, and events and determine if these can be used as viable means to disseminate information on health services. The only cost to respondent is their time. The estimated annualized burden is 240 hours.
