Physical Activity Promotion for Breast and Endometrial Cancer Survivors

About the Study

This study is looking at whether messaging and coaching can increase activity level and how moderate-to-vigorous activity improves symptoms and quality-of-life in women diagnosed with breast or endometrial cancer.

What the Study Involves

All people in the study will receive the following:

  • A Fitbit tracker to measure physical activity and sitting time.
  • Message sent through their electronic health record (EHR) patient portal encouraging expercise.

After 20 weeks, people in the study will be placed in one the following groups depending on their activity level.

  • People who respond to the fitbit tracking and messages by increasing their activity will continue to receive these messages and reminders. 
  • People who do not respond by increasing exercise within 20 weeks will be randomly placed into one of two experimental groups:
    • Group 1 will be given access to an online gym with exercise videos in addition to the Fitbit tracker.
    • Group 2 will receive coaching calls in addition to the Fitbit tracker.
