Dalhousie University and Capital Health are supporting a study that will help to better understand the role of physical activity in the lives of young adult lymphoma survivors. They sent us the following information to share with you:

Eligibility

Most importantly, participants must have a confirmed diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Disease or Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Other criteria:

 

Your participation

This is a three-month, home-based study. Should you decide to participate, you will be asked to report your physical activity behaviour and overall quality of life at four points in time.  All study materials and resources will be sent to you through the mail.

Should you qualify and consent to participate, they will send you an introductory survey.

Once you have completed and returned this survey, they will send you a physical activity plan with activity recommendations. They ask that you try and follow the recommendations as much as you are able.

They will then send you a follow-up survey to assess your physical activity and quality of life at every four weeks for three months.

For more information please contact the lead investigator, Dr. Melanie Keats, at (902) 494-7173 or by email at melanie.keats@dal.ca.
