Circle of Women"At last! An opportunity for the women of Marin to do something about breast cancer in
their community."

Thank you for taking a few minutes to visit the Marin Women's Study website.

The Marin Women's Study is a breast cancer research study.

This is the first prospective study in Marin County to link individual risk factors with biospecimens and breast cancer outcomes.

Between late 2006 - early 2010, all Marin residents receiving Mammograms (both screening and diagnostic) were invited to join the Marin Women's Study.

We now have 14,000 women enrolled in the Marin Women's Study!

Thank you to all the women in Marin who have taken the time to become part of this landmark breast cancer research study. Your participation will benefit generations.
