The WISDOM Study
The WISDOM Study is a nation-wide effort to improve breast cancer screening for all women. The goal of WISDOM is to find the safest and best way to screen for breast cancer.
The WISDOM Study compares two ways to screen for breast cancer in women age 40 and over with no history of breast cancer. One way is the standard yearly mammogram. The other way is a personal screening plan based on the individual’s risk factors for breast cancer, including genetics.
Participation is easy. You do not need to change where you get your mammogram or go to a study site – it can be done from home. Women ages 40 to 74, who have no prior breast cancer diagnosis, are eligible to participate. At no cost to you, the study involves:
- Online questionnaires
- Saliva “spit Kit” (DNA test kit sent to your home for some participants)
- Screening advice for you and your doctor based on your personal risk
