Corbett, Julia B.; Mori, Motomi

Contributes to scholarship on the role of mass media in breast cancer coverage. Finds extremely high, significant correlations between numbers of medical-journal articles and newspaper, magazine, and TV coverage; a two-way concurrent relationship between breast cancer funding and media coverage, and between breast cancer incidence and TV coverage; and prominent women acknowledging their breast cancer significantly affected media coverage.
