Description: We explored breast cancer disparities in North Carolina by combining existing data sources, namely the Carolina Mammography Registry and the Cancer Information & Population Health Resource. For this pilot study, we evaluated if low income women enrolled in a federal breast cancer screening program continued to receive appropriate follow-up once they transitioned out of the program. We also used the combined data to explore additional research questions related to breast cancer disparities across North Carolina.
