Focus Group Discussion of New Colorectal Cancer Screenings

The University of Utah Psychology Department and Huntsman Cancer Institute would like to invite you to participate in a new research study. We are searching for people to be involved in a focus group discussion of new and current colorectal cancer screening tests. We are looking for White, Latino, and Black men and women to participate in the study. You do not need to have any prior knowledge about colorectal cancer or screening options. We are looking for any individual who is between the ages of 50 to 74 years, fluent in English, and who does not have a personal or family history of colon or colorectal cancer. Focus groups will be held at the Salt Lake City Public Library (Downtown) and will last approximately 2 hours. Refreshments will be served. You will be compensated for your time. The purpose of this study is to learn about local adults’ attitudes and opinions toward currently available screening options for colorectal cancer as well as attitudes and opinions about a newly developed screening option.

If you are interested in participating and/or learning more about the study please contact Jennifer Taber by email at (jennifer.taber@psych.utah.edu) or by phone at (801) 587-9022.
