Michigan Study: Unemployment is Common after Breast Cancer Treatment

Nearly one-third of breast cancer survivors who were working when they began treatment were unemployed four years later, a new University of Michigan study found. Women who received chemotherapy were most affected, according to the study, which featured four Michigan researchers from the School of Public Health: Dr. Yun Li, research assistant professor, Dr. Nancy Janz, professor of health behavior and health education, Dr. Jennifer Griggs, professor of health management and policy, and Dr. Steven Katz, professor of health management and policy.
