ARE YOU A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR? Join Our Study and Help Researchers Learn More About Treating Cognitive Problems Attributed to Chemotherapy

Study Overview

ARE YOU A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR?  HAVE YOU NOTICED ANY PROBLEMS WITH YOUR COGNITIVE FUNCTION - MEMORY, ATTENTION, ABILITY TO MULTI-TASK - AFTER COMPLETING CHEMOTHERAPY?
 
Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh are seeking volunteers to take part in a study looking at two telehealth-delivered therapies to treat memory and attention problems after breast cancer chemotherapy.
 
Your participation will help researchers determine which treatment may be more effective at improving cognitive function of breast cancer survivors post-chemottherapy.
