Summary of "Economic disparities in Appalachia linked to risk factors for long-term health for estrogen positive breast cancer patients."

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for women in the United States and mortality from cancer is more common among individuals in the Appalachian region compared to the rest of the country. We examined how risk factors for long-term health outcomes for Estrogen positive breast cancer patients differed by county economic status in southern Appalachia.
