The Oncofertility Consortium has launched the FIRST national long-term study to examine how different cancers and treatments affect the fertility and reproductive health of women cancer patients and survivors. Women ages 18-44 who received their cancer diagnosis within 3 years qualify for the study. There is an online questionnaire about women's reproductive health that the participant answers on a yearly basis. This study is funded by the National Institutes of Health and has been approved by the UCSD Institutional Review Board.

Young adults, those ages 18 to 24, was the group most likely to be uninsured.

New surveys now find that young adults have made gains in insurance coverage since 2010. The Obama Administration and officials from the Department of Health and Human Services attribute the gains made in reducing the number of uninsured in the young adult group to a provision of the Affordable Care Act that was implemented in September 2010.
