An Exercise RCT Targeting African-American Women With Metabolic Syndrome and High Risk for Breast Cancer

Among African-American women, in whom metabolic syndrome (MetS) is very prevalent and breast cancer mortality rates are high, it is hypothesized that intervening on MetS to improve the MetS profile may prove to be a means to reduce breast cancer risk. Specific recommendations for breast cancer prevention are now focused on maintaining a healthy weight via increased physical activity levels, and losing weight if overweight or obese. This pilot project compares two exercise inte...


Program for African American Cognition & Exercise

The study is designed to develop and evaluate a physical activity promotion program among elderly African Americans with a long-term goal of reducing risk of Alzheimer's disease.

A secondary objective of this study is to identify African American women who are most and least likely to benefit from CTGC vs. SGC.

Financial Incentives and Text Messaging to Improve African American Womens' Glycemic Control

Diabetes is a major public health problem that is associated with substantial health disparities for African American women compared to African American men or white men and women. This project will incorporate a) new technology whose use is high among African Americans (cell phone text message reminders), b) support from social networks, and c) strategies from the emerging field of behavioral economics to encourage and support self care behaviors that lead to improvements in d...

Moving Forward: A Weight Loss Intervention for African-American Breast Cancer Survivors

This is a randomized intervention study to examine the effects of the Moving Forward Guided Weigh Loss Intervention compared to a self-guided weight loss program on BMI and behavioral, biological, and psychosocial outcomes in overweight and obese African American women diagnosed with Stage I, II, or III breast cancer.

Family Eats: Cancer Prevention for Families

Poor diets lead to weight problems, and may increase cancer risk. Cancers may develop over a long period of time, with some possibly initiating in childhood. Therefore, promoting healthy diets and preventing excess weight gain during childhood could be cancer protective. Families influence children's dietary behaviors by their actions and controlling the home food environment. The internet provides family access to interventions with the convenience of the home. An eight-sessi...

Attitudes, Beliefs, and Preferences of Older Stage I-III Breast Cancer Survivors Towards Physical Activity

This clinical trial studies the attitudes, beliefs, and preferences of older stage I-III breast cancer survivors towards physical activity. Studies have shown that older African-American and women of lower socioeconomic status are more likely than their Caucasian counterparts and women of higher socioeconomic status to have functional disability at the time of a new breast cancer diagnosis. Functional disability is the inability to independently complete activities of daily liv...

Effects of a Structured Exercise Program on Cancer-Related Fatigue in Women Receiving Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer

Radiation therapy (RT) is often used to treat breast cancer. RT combined with breast surgery is associated with better outcomes in early stage breast cancer compared to surgery alone. Fatigue is one of the most important side effects of RT because it can decrease patients' quality of life. Studies found that physical activity (PA) may help to improve quality of life in cancer survivors. PA has been reported to lower fatigue, anxiety, and depression. Physical inactivity o...
