VOICES of Black Women

VOICES of Black Women Logo

VOICES of Black Women is a long-term study led by the Population Science team within the American Cancer Society (ACS) that aims to enroll at least 100,000 Black women in the United States over the next few years. The goal of this study is to better understand health conditions like cancer and how to improve overall health among Black women.

Black women have been historically underrepresented in research, and this “next generation” study will help us overcome previous limitations from such under-representation. Information from our VOICES participants will help optimize the health of Black women for generations to come by giving ACS VOICES researchers the opportunity to:

  • Advance the knowledge of the health conditions that affect Black women.
  • Inform strategies for interventions to help Black women decrease their risk for certain diseases.
  • Inform advocacy efforts that initiate, support, or expand health policies based on evidence-based research.
