Pilot Study: Healthy Lifestyle Intervention for African American Uterine Cancer Survivors


Study Description: Uterine cancer is the fourth most common cancer in U.S. women. African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed with tumors related to uterine cancer that are more difficult to treat. These and other racial disparities suggest that there may be unmet needs among African American uterine cancer survivors. The overall purpose of this pilot study is to develop a culturally tailored lifestyle intervention to help these survivors reduce their risk of cancer recurrence and improve their quality of life through healthy eating and physical activity.
