Proposed Project

Issues Related to the Use of Mass Media in African-American Women: Phase II—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Coordinating Center for Health Promotion (CoCHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

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.

As part of an ongoing study, the purpose of this task is to (1) test consumer response to concepts that arose in the Phase I formative research related to breast cancer screening and (2) test a series of radio health messages aimed at increasing mammography screening among low-income African American women for cultural appropriateness.

There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the survey.
