 NNECOS Board member Dr. Rob Ferguson is conducing a study called "Videoconference CBT for Rural Breast Cancer Survivors with Cognitive Complaints".

Research investigators at Eastern Maine Medical Center and the University of Maine have received a grant from the National Cancer Institute and Office of Research on Women’s Health to evaluate the effectiveness of a cognitive-behavioral therapy CBT) for rural breast cancer survivors with memory problems caused by chemotherapy. Because rural cancer survivors often have to travel long distances for follow-up care after cancer treatment, this research will study the effectiveness of using videoconference technology to reduce travel.
