  1. Reverse targeting in a media-promoted breast cancer screening project.

    Article - En anglais


    The American Cancer Society has sponsored community-based, low-cost, Breast Cancer Detection Awareness Projects throughout the United States.

    The authors hypothesized that these projects tend to exclude minorities and women of lower socioeconomic status-groups with a higher incidence of late-stage disease.


    A cross-sectional survey was performed of participants in the 1990 Breast Screening Project in Tampa, Florida.

    The demographic profile of participants was compared with that predicted by 1990 census data.
