Students may partake in any of my ongoing studies including 1) a decision aid on mammography screening for older women; 2) a decision aid on breast cancer treatment for older women; 3) Breast cancer risk assessment for women in their 40s in primary care; and 4) Developing and testing scripts for discussing stopping cancer screening and long-term prognosis with older adults. Students may help with study design, recruiting patients, interviewing patients, data analyses, data interpretation, and/or manuscript preparation.
