The specific aim of this project is to develop hypotheses which will lead to better understanding of the social, cultural, spiritual and other factors that influence beliefs and practices preventing early detection of breast cancer among the target population. The objectives are: (1) To identify unexplored barriers to early detection of breast cancer among African-American women over the age of 50, and (2) To identify strategies for reducing these barriers, including methods for testing the effectiveness of these strategies.
