Volunteers needed for study on the connection between shift work and breast cancer

Research has shown that women shift workers exposed to light at night are at increased risk for breast cancer. 

Vancouver (26 Feb. 2013) - Are you a woman who works shifts?

You may be eligible to participate in a University of British Columbia sleep improvement program that may improve your quality of life, and help reduce breast cancer. Research has shown that women shift workers exposed to light at night are at increased risk for breast cancer.

With your help, we can learn more about how to prevent breast cancer in shift workers for the future.
