The Detroit portion of this study was conducted while Dr. Weigers was at the University of Michigan and was supported through grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Scholars in Health Policy Research Program, and was conducted through the Detroit Community Academic Prevention Research Center funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Epidemiology Program Office. The Chicago portion of the study was supported through grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the University of Missouri, and the University of Missouri-St. Louis. This work would not have been possible without the contributions of Rosanna Barrera, who helped with fieldwork in Chicago, J. Ricardo Guzman, Executive Director of Community Health and Social Services Center (CHASS) in Detroit, and the women in Chicago and Detroit who so generously shared their lives with us. We also wish to acknowledge the valuable contributions of Patrick Ball, Paula Lanz and the anonymous reviewers.
