Disparities in Colorectal Cancer Prevention Behaviors


The goal of this research is to develop and test potential intervention messages which can
be used to help increase colon cancer prevention behaviors. Two sets of intervention
messages will be developed: generic and behavioral. Using a randomized control design the
investigators will evaluate the behavioral messages among women. This message testing
protocol will help them determine if the messages are relevant, acceptable, comprehensible,
memorable, and motivating for the target audience. The investigators' hypothesis is that
the behavioral messages will receive more positive ratings than the generic messages. If
so, they will be used to promote cancer screening and physical activity in future
intervention studies.
