We are dedicated to expanding opportunities for Kentucky women to participate in medical research. As more women participate in medical studies, researchers are discovering that women may have very different reactions than men to the same drugs and treatments. The Center's goal is for all Kentucky women to fill out the
Kentucky Women's Health Registry survey and consider volunteering for medical studies that will help us advance medical knowledge about women's health.
Appointments are available on Monday or Friday mornings only. This convenient option for busy and active women is available to healthy women between the ages of 40-64 who have no active health disorders.
All in one Monday or Friday morning appointment:
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women. It's estimated that 178,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in the US in 2007. Experts do not know the exact causes of breast cancer but research has shown certain factors increase a woman's chances of getting breast cancer. Although some women are at higher risk, the fact is all women are at risk for breast cancer. Learn more by participating in our Breast Cancer Risk Factors Multimedia Interactive Program.
