This report describes a tailored intervention to increase compliance regarding mammography and the stage of its adoption among low-income African-American women aged 45 to 64 years. Two randomly assigned groups received either an in-person tailored intervention or routine care. The intervention was targeted toward perceived risk of breast cancer and perceived benefits of and barriers to breast cancer screening. Participants accrued from a community service center were followed for one year to identify the effect of the intervention on adoption of mammography.
