Announcement: GCF Cooperates with Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to Learn Opinions about Follow-up Care

January 6, 2011

The Gynecologic Cancer Foundation is cooperating with researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to learn your opinion about follow-up care after your initial treatment if you have not had a recurrence of your cancer.

This online survey has been approved by the MD Anderson Institutional Review Board and will take about 15 minutes of your time.

The Gynecologic Cancer Foundation does not share its mailing list and your contact information, including your e-mail address, will not be placed into any other database as a result of your participation in this survey.

Because cancer treatments continue to improve, the number of women surviving is increasing. Researchers at MD Anderson are interested in learning about how patients with gynecologic cancers want to be followed after completing their treatments and your participation in this survey will assist them.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Dr. Matthew Schlumbrecht at MD Anderson at 713-563-4583 ormpschlumbrecht@mdanderson.org

Instructions and consent information are included in the survey information. To participate, please click here.

Thank you very much.
