(Received permission from Mr. Peter Waite via email)

Eun-Ok Im, PhD, MPH, RN, CNS, FAAN and her colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania are conducting a research study to test the effectiveness of an online support group for Asian American women living with breast cancer.

The project period will be from Oct. 1st , 2014 to Jun. 30th, 2015 and data will be collected through the Internet. Methods for data collection include Internet surveys of 60 Asian American women living with breast cancer at three times. Depending on the group that you are randomly assigned, you may or may not be asked to use the online support group, but both groups will be asked to use the online resources that are provided by the research team.
