Social Networks and Disparities in Health Behaviors and Breast Cancer Outcomes in Immigrant Women

The goals of this study are to evaluate associations between: 1) immigrant status and social networks at the neighborhood level and at the individual level, overall and by race/ethnicity, further evaluating associations among Asian/Pacific Islander and Hispanic, relative to non-Hispanic white women; 2) immigrant status and multilevel social network characteristics with behavioral factors known to influence breast cancer survival, overall and by race/ethnicity; and 3) immigrant status, multilevel social network characteristics, and breast cancer outcomes including recurrence, breast cancer-specific mortality, and total mortality, overall and by race/ethnicity, evaluating the degree to which social network characteristics and behavioral risk factors mediate associations.
