ADOLESCENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS BECOMING PHYSICALLY ACTIVE AFTER CANCER TRIAL (AYA-PACT)
Cancer in adolescents and young adults (AYAs) is increasing and the cancer survivor population is growing. As cancer treatments are known to cause late effects, it is important to understand how we can prevent or reduce these risks. Exercise has emerged as a lifestyle factor that improves physical fitness and quality of life after cancer. Our goal is to see if we can improve health outcomes in AYA cancer survivors using a home-based, mobile health intervention.
