In a broadcast interview that aired throughout New England, Get Real Consulting’s Robin Wiener discussed how her team is revolutionizing breast cancer research. Wiener appeared on the popular Frankie Boyer Show, which runs on several radio stations around Massachusetts. The topic: How Get Real built the largest online international survey ever for the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. It’s called the Health of Women (HOW) study, which is a first-of-its-kind research study that surveys women and men with and without a history of breast cancer.
The HOW Study will look at a large group of women (and men), with the goal of identifying new risk factors for, and potential causes of, breast cancer. The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation engaged Get Real Consulting to develop a secure and user-friendly website, ensuring that survey participants can provide accurate data no matter their level of computer literacy. To join the 26,000 who have already decided to support this powerful study, just log onto this website:
Get Real also developed a custom content management system, administration portal and database allowing breast cancer researchers and HOW study partners the ability to rapidly analyze and share participant feedback.
“We’ve had the privilege of building this fantastic application for Susan Love Research Foundation”, Robin Wiener, president and founding partner told Frankie Boyer. “Seventy percent of breast cancers, we have no idea what causes it. Where is this coming from, is it environmental, is it family history?” Weiner continued, “Let’s stop talking about it and get some data about what’s happening out there.”
Frankie Boyer urged her listeners to help Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation reach their goal of signing up one million men and women for the survey. “We could be a critical piece of helping find a cure for breast cancer.” says Boyer.
