Breast cancer survival varies among women from different racial/ethnic groups, even when comparing women diagnosed at similar stages of disease spread. The California Breast Cancer Survivorship Consortium is striving to understand a range of factors, including neighborhood characteristics, leading to racial/ethnic differences in stage-specific breast cancer survival.  It is taking the efficient approach of using information pooled together from previously collected for six California-based breast cancer studies.
