After over 6 years, the Health of Women (HOW) Study® is closing. Thank you for your participation!

This update comes with exciting news: After over six years, we are ending the data-collection phase of The HOW Study. This means that the online questionnaires will be closing. Next, our team will be working with collaborators around the country to use the de-identified data to better understand breast cancer and its potential causes. Your impactful decision to participate in this research is helping us get one step closer to eradicating breast cancer. We can’t thank you enough.

The HOW Study was a first-of-its-kind international online study, with a goal to better understand breast cancer and its potential causes. HOW asked health-related questions on topics like family history, reproductive health, diet, and exercise. Your dedication and willingness to participate has already contributed to interesting research findings, including which factors affect whether people are adhering to BRCA 1/2 testing guidelines.

Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation believes in keeping our participants connected. Results from this research will be made available to our dedicated participants, such as yourself, who made this work possible.

Interested in participating in more game-changing research? Join the Army of Women today! The Army of Women® aims to connect women and men of all ages, ethnicities, and locations to researchers committed to solving important breast cancer questions. Our goal is to accelerate and increase diversity in breast cancer research.

The Army of Women® is recruiting for multiple studies. You can learn more about our open studies and see if you or someone you know may be eligible to participate.

Thank you for your support.
