Graphic Novel Study

Are you a male at high risk for developing hereditary cancer but has not been diagnosed with cancer? Do you have a family history of carrying a BRCA1/2 genetic mutation? Do you feel you have information to make informed health and family decisions about your future? Are you interested in sharing your experiences to help others?

Participate in a 60-minute online interview. Participants will receive a $30 Amazon gift card. If you are interested in this research opportunity, please the study coordinator Ms. Lexi Ingle at aingle@usf.edu.
