Cancer Experience Among Emerging Adults Research Study

cancer in emerging adults

As someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, you are invited to participate in a survey-based research study about the experience of individuals diagnosed with cancer between the ages of 18 and 29. This study is being completed to better understand the experience of young adults diagnosed with cancer in the hopes that one day, there will be improvements in the care provided to individuals in this age range. Your valuable input would greatly help us with this research and potentially help improve the experiences of individuals like you diagnosed with cancer in the future.

You are eligible to participate in this study if you received a cancer diagnosis between the ages of 18 and 29 and have completed some form of treatment (including, but not limited to chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, etc.) in the last 5 years. The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete.

Should you choose to participate, your answers will be kept confidential and will never be linked directly to you. If you have research-related questions, please contact Mikaila Hudson at or Dr. Natalia Sira, PhD, MD at or 252-328-5544. Please contact the Office for Human Reseach Integrity (OHRI) at 252-744-2914 for questions about your rights as a research participant. Thank you for your valuable input!
