UAB expands exercise study for breast-cancer survivors

Researchers seek to develop interventions that will enhance the quality of life after treatment.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is enrolling another 40 women in its study to help breast-cancer survivors begin and sustain an exercise program that can improve their quality of life.

The Better Exercise Adherence after Treatment for Cancer (BEAT Cancer) study is funded by a $3.5-million federal grant from the National Cancer Institute. Researchers are enrolling women diagnosed with breast-cancer who have finished treatment but are not engaged in a regular exercise program.
