To our knowledge, Radiation Therapy (RT) interruption has never been investigated in vulnerable populations in the Mid-South. Furthermore, there has been no previous study designed to evaluate the relationship between spatial poverty distributions and RT interruption in any US region. In this study, we aimed to benchmark RT interruption rates across our patient population, define clinical and socioeconomic factors associated with risk for interruption, and map RT interruption disparities across the treatment region to identify vulnerable neighborhoods.

During career advancement, increased exposure to men who abuse their position of authority, and greater resilience and awareness of these abuses following early-career experiences of sexual harassment, are speculated to be potential reasons for this observed association.
