Researchers at the University of Manchester interviewed women from underserved populations to hear what the main barriers to attending breast screening were for them.
Victoria has worked for The University of Manchester as a Research Assistant since 2017. Since completing her Master of Research in psychology (MRes) at the University, she has worked on various research projects in the field of risk estimation and stratified screening for breast cancer. Victoria’s passion lies in the prevention and early detection of breast cancer and creating a more accessible breast screening programme for all, where informed choice about attendance is facilitated.
In September 2020 Victoria will begin her PhD, researching risk communication and revised breast cancer risk estimates.
