ATHENA BREAST HEALTH NETWORK \/ SURGERY The Athena Breast Health Network is a unique collaboration among the five University of California medical centers (UCSF, UCSD, UC Davis, UC Irvine, and UCLA), their affiliates, and many other public and private partners. Through Athena, over 150,000 women who are being screened for breast cancer will be followed for decades. Patients in this network receive personalized care and risk assessments, and researchers are able to create a repository of clinical and biological data and specimens. The Athena Project Management Office (PMO), which oversees these collaborations, is located at UCSF. The Athena Network has recently received funding to conduct a large scale pragmatic trial across the Athena sites. The five-year Wisdom Study will recruit 100,000 women, and the goal of the study is to test two approaches to breast cancer screening (annual screening vs. personalized breast screening) to determine which approach is most effective, safe, and preferred by women. This highly visible and impactful study requires a dedicated and motived coordinator to support the site-wide efforts to implement and execute the patient-centered outreach, consent, and surveys across all sites.
