The Yale Exercise and Survivorship Study compared various recruitment strategies on accrual rates and baseline characteristics of breast cancer survivors and reported adherence to recommended levels of physical activity. Findings from this study will provide useful information for investigators conducting exercise trials in cancer populations, clinicians treating women diagnosed with breast cancer, and exercise professionals developing community-based exercise programs for cancer survivors.
