SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Washington State University research study is looking for breast cancer survivors for a 12-week study.

University leaders said participants need to commit three hours per week for 12 weeks. In return, they will get free nutrition counseling and will participate in physical activity and meet other survivors.

The researcher is trying to find out if the type of physical activity makes a difference in how survivors perform on tests of mental processing and physical fitness. She is comparing treadmill walking, aerobics classes and a sedentary control group.

Participant should have completed their breast cancer treatment within the past three months. They should be getting less than 150 minutes of physical activity most weeks and they must speak English.

Those interested may contact the researcher, Julie Larsen, at j.larsen@email.wsu.edu or by leaving a message at her office 509-358-7676.

Larsen is in her third year of work toward a PhD in nutrition and exercise physiology.
