Breast Cancer Risk Study for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers

The National Peace Corps Association has partnered with researchers at Baylor College of Medicine to determine if there is a link between the risk of cancers, including breast cancer, and medications taken during Peace Corps service. The investigators have developed an online survey for RPCVs to measure health and health-affecting behaviors.

The goal is that EVERY woman who served in the Peace Corps between 1961 and 1990 is represented in this study. 

If you are interested in participating, go to this link to learn more about the study:, and you may contact the study organizers at Baylor College of Medecine at to ask to receive a study invitation.  The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete.
