Abstract : This study examines the impact of a multiple outcall intervention designed to increase adherence to mammography guidelines by low income and minority women, age 50+. While original plans involved using a geodemographic database to identify low income neighborhoods throughout the State of Colorado and conduct recruitment by telephone, this plan has been revised to involve face-to-face recruitment at grocery stores. Once recruited, women are counseled over the phone regarding screening mammography.
