The adjustments are noted below and the link to the sign up page is here. If you know someone, pass it on. Nothing is going to happen, nothing is going to change..... UNLESS we have the willing volunteers. Anyone?
Please note: If you already RSVP'd online via the Army of Women invitation, you will have to reply differently. The information about how to "reapply" is in the final paragraph.
Oh... and I also read some great news about another Army of Women study. Yesterday, the study was filled. This works if we all work together. Let's close this one, too. Are there 23 women out there who fit the new criteria? Make a difference. If you qualify.... go ahead... MAKE a difference. That feeling, I can assure you, is like nothing you will ever experience.
Happy Friday. Happy Weekend.
Dear AnneMarie,There is research demonstrating that working the night shift increases a woman's breast cancer risk. Researchers from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University want to figure out why by studying breast tissue samples from women who have NOT had breast cancer. Their goal is to see if there are differences in the cells in the breast tissue of women who work day shifts and those who work night shifts.
We have recruited for this study in the past but we still need 23 more night-shift workers to sign up so we can close recruitment. We are now enrolling women between 30-65 years old who have worked night shifts for at least 5 consecutive years at some point in their life and we are now interested in "rotating night-shift workers", those who work at least three nights per month, in addition to day and evening hours.
If you're a night-shift worker who didn't quite fit the criteria before, please take another look -- you may now be eligible! If you're not a night-shift worker but know someone who is, please forward the Call to Action to them!
