Although endometrial cancer (EC) has an overall 5-year survival rate of 80%; this disguises a large racial disparity. Black women have a 55% higher 5-year mortality rate compared to women of all other races. There is a significant evidence gap when it comes to interventions that address this inequity. This work discusses successful user-centered design methods for engaging African-American women affected by EC in creating a website aimed at education, community-building, and research partnerships.
Learning Objective 1: Understand the factors that facilitate effective engagement of Black women affected by endometrial cancer utilizing user-centered design methods.
