Study Information
BEAT Cancer Study

This study conducted by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Alabama at Birmingham is evaluating the effectiveness of the BEAT Cancer exercise program. The research team is comparing the effects of the BEAT Cancer exercise intervention to usual care (written materials about exercise for cancer survivors) on short- and longer-term physical activity adherence among breast cancer survivors. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 256 volunteers and used the Army of Women (AOW) as one of their recruitment sources. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on May 29, 2011, and the researchers closed enrollment on Sept. 28, 2015. The AOW provided them with 64 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
