Cancer Screening among Chicagoland Muslim Women

Project Overview

This research project represented a collaboration between Initiative of Islam and Medicine and the Council for the Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago (CIOGC). The project was funded through the Institute for Translational Medicine at the University of Chicago Community Project Mini-Award, American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant (IRG-58-004), and a Mentored Research Scholar Grant in Applied and Clinical Research, MRSG-14-032-01-CPPB, from the American Cancer Society. Our goal was to assess the impact of concerns for modesty and fatalistic attitudes on cancer screening rates within the American Muslim community through self-administered surveys.
