Professors Cheryl Ramos and Linc Gotshalk are recruiting participants until the end of March for their “Let’s Go Walking” study for cancer survivors. This study is being conducted to learn about the benefits of an 8-week walking program on the physical and psychological functioning, and exercise behavior of cancer survivors.

Participants must be at least 18, completed treatment for breast, prostate, or colon-rectal cancer 2 years ago or longer, and be able to engage in moderate physical activity. Surveys and physical assessments will be done before and after the program.

At the end of the 8-week program participants will receive a $20 KTA gift certificate, a pedometer, and a walking log calendar to help them maintain their walking program, and as a “thank you” for taking part in the study.

To learn more about the study and to find out if you are eligible to participate, call 640-2636 or email letsgowalkingsurvivors@gmail.com.
