The Wisdom Study

No comments
Happy Monday y'all! I hope all of you had an amazing labor day weekend! With that said, I kept thinking about a resource I wanted to share known as The Wisdom Study. The study is to find out if all women need to get a mammogram every year or if there should be more of a personalized screening recommendation based on breast health, family history, lifestyle and more.

Below are a couple FAQs created by the Wisdom Study: 

What is the WISDON Study?

The WISDOM Study is designed to end the confusion about breast cancer screening. By comparing two safe and accepted screening recommendations, we will determine the best screening guidelines for ourselves, our sisters, our daughters, and future generations of women. Together, we will discover the best way forward.

What are the benefits of participating in the WISDOM Study?

By participating in this study, you will help us determine how to best screen every woman. You will have access to the latest information on breast health provided from a source you can trust. You may also have access to advanced genetic testing that is currently not routinely available. Most advances that have been made in breast cancer risk reduction, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer are due to participation of women like you in studies like this. By participating you are joining a community of 100,000 women who will end the confusion for yourself, other women, and future generations of women. 

Why is the WISDOM Study needed?

There is a lot of confusion about when and how often a woman should get a mammogram. Breast cancer experts don't all agree. The WISDOM study hopes to provide clarification on which method is safer and more effective for women: routine yearly screening or personalized screening. 

The study aims to determine how to best screen every woman and learn the best way to use mammograms to catch breast cancer while reducing the number of false alarms and biopsies for women without breast cancer. This study will compare routine yearly and personalized screening.
