|Help defeat breast cancer by joining research study|
Want to help defeat breast cancer? If you would like to be part of new studies at the medical school aimed at determining the most effective means of prevention and early detection of cancer in the breast, the Department of Surgery/Office of Research is looking for you.
The breast is the leading site of cancer development in North Dakota and Minnesota women. Edward Sauter, associate dean for research and program development and professor of surgery, and his team of clinical researchers are seeking volunteers for several breast cancer prevention studies using herbal/botanical interventions to prevent the disease, and noninvasive approaches to early breast cancer detection. All studies are free of charge.
The studies vary in length with some requiring four-weeks and others a 12-week time commitment. Volunteers who live in, or within traveling distance of Grand Forks and Fargo are especially invited to participate.
Remember, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You can make a difference for women of all ages.
