Karen Meneses, Ph.D., associate dean for research at the UAB School of Nursing, has received a two-year, $150,000 grant from Women’s Breast Health Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham for a project, The Young Breast Cancer Survivorship Network.

This project aims to improve the quality of life for young breast-cancer survivors and their loved ones through education, personal support, distance learning and media networking. Meneses will work with the support group at the American Cancer Society and other organizations that can provide support services for women diagnosed before age 55 and their loved ones. The Web-based nature of this program will allow greater flexibility for young women with busy schedules. The project also provides support for children of survivors through a partnership with Oasis Counseling for Women and Children.
