About

In this study, the investigators will deliver self-sampling human papillomavirus (HPV) tests and fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kits, as well as adapted cancer screening educational materials, by mail to 110 women who are out-of-date for both cervical and colorectal cancer screenings, recruited through federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in rural, segregated counties of Pennsylvania. The hypothesis is that delivering self-sampling HPV tests and FIT, as well as adapted educational materials, to women in rural, segregated areas could help increase cancer screening, reduce geographic cancer disparities, and improve public health.

Full description

In this study, the investigators will deliver self-sampling human papillomavirus (HPV) tests and fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kits, as well as adapted cancer screening educational materials, by mail to 110 women who are out-of-date for both cervical and colorectal cancer screenings, recruited through federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in rural, segregated counties of Pennsylvania. A control group of 110 women, also recruited through FQHCs in rural, segregated counties of Pennsylvania, will be used for comparison; these women will receive standard-of-care reminders for cancer screening and complete the baseline and follow-up surveys. The hypothesis is that delivering self-sampling HPV tests and FIT, as well as adapted educational materials, to women in rural, segregated areas could help increase cancer screening, reduce geographic cancer disparities, and improve public health.
