Study examined the preventive health behaviors of women with spinal cord injury (SCI) by comparing the frequency of mammograms or Pap smears between women with SCI and women in the general population, and among women with SCI as a function of racial/ethnic status and socioeconomic status (income and education level). Participants were interviewed by telephone. Overall, women with SCI were less likely to obtain routine health screening than women in the general population. However, no differences were found among study participants as a function of race/ethnicity or socioeconomic status.
