Project R.E.A.C.H.
Using mHealth systems to improve mortality rates


Project R.E.A.C.H. (Recover, Empower, Adapt, Cope and Heal) is a mHealth intervention study that aims to understand the best way to disseminate health information to underserved women coping with breast cancer. We created this intervention which combines support and health information into a digital format for broader reach. The purpose of Project REACH is to test the acceptability of this this mHealth intervention and measure its influence on health related quality of life. We use 10 short, highly engaging, films to deliver valuable breast cancer health information content and structured support consistently delivered over a ten week period to engage patients in self-management of their treatment process. Successful completion of Project REACH will provide pilot data needed to examine clinical outcomes in this population. The expected result of this work is the creation of an effective mHealth intervention with broad national reach that will improve mortality in low income Black women diagnosed with breast cancer.
