Specialized apps extend the reach of community
Funding and support for the app came from the Women's Breast Health Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, as part of an effort to improve quality of life for breast cancer survivors and their loved ones. The leader of the project is Debbie Walker, DNP, assistant professor in UAB's School of Nursing. Walker noted that although the developers originally designed the app for patients with breast cancer, it touches on issues important to patients with other types of cancer as well.
