This is the vision of the WISDOM Study.

We are a partnership of breast health doctors and researchers, patient advocates, community leaders and women from all neighborhoods who share a common goal: to revolutionize the way breast cancer is detected and risk is reduced.

The WISDOM Study brings together 100,000 diverse women from across the US to find the safest and most effective way to detect breast cancer for every woman.

We are working to determine the safest and best way to detect breast cancer.

The WISDOM Study compares two approved screening approaches: annual mammograms for all women, starting at the age of 40 or a personalized approach to breast screening that is based on a woman’s individual risk factors for breast cancer, like her breast density, genes, and family health history.

The WISDOM Study is easy to join and is completed mostly online.

Complete your first health questionnaire, and if selected, some participants provide a saliva sample to identify personal risk factors.


Step 3

WISDOM will send you screening recommendations on when to start and how often to have mammograms based on your study group.


Step 4

Every year for the 5 year study, we’ll email you and ask you to fill out a new questionnaire online to track your breast health.
