The Influence of Exercise Prescriptions on Physical Activity and Other Determinants of Health Among Cancer Survivors


About this study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a new Mayo Clinic intervention in which preventive cardiology practitioners provide a baseline assessment of the nutritional and functional status and comorbidities of cancer survivors and then develop an individualized, independent exercise program.

Participation eligibility
