A healthy dietary pattern and regular physical activity have been associated with better cancer outcomes for many cancers.  However, it has proven difficult to identify effective strategies to achieve and maintain behavior change in cancer patient populations.  Dr. Greenlee will discuss her ongoing work that focuses on identifying effective diet and physical activity behavior change interventions for cancer survivors.  She will discuss the Mi Vida Saludable (My Health Life) trial, a diet and physical activity trial among Latina breast cancer survivors in New York City.  She will also discuss two ongoing trials in the Pacific Northwest – one among breast cancer survivors at the Seattle Cancer Alliance and one among cancer survivors in the Lower Yakima Valley.
