Improving Physical Activity After Cancer Treatment (IMPAACT) Research Study

Loyola Marymount University (LMU)

Grant: $50,000
The Improving Physical Activity After Cancer Treatment (IMPAACT) study examines the effect of prescribed exercise on improving psychosocial burden and risk factors for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis. At no cost to participants, the study provides cancer survivors with supervised training three days a week for nine months. Each participant would be assessed at three time-points: at the beginning, halfway through, and at the conclusion of the 9-month exercise program. Outcomes from the longitudinal study will help to better inform survivorship care plans for cancer survivors.
