Study Summary

The purpose of the Health and Energy through Active Living Every Day (HEALED) intervention, is to examine the effect of a web-based intervention on changes in device-measured physical activity (light and moderate-to-vigorous intensity aerobic) and sedentary behavior. The purpose of this study is intended for survivors of a cancer with a 5-year survival (at Stage I, II, and III) of at least 45% that has a strong level of evidence for association with physical inactivity according to the 2018 PA Guidelines Advisory Committee Report (breast, colon, endometrium, kidney, bladder, multiple myeloma). In line with social cognitive theory behavior change techniques, participants will be provided information and skills necessary to be more physically active and less sedentary after a cancer diagnosis. New materials will be disseminated biweekly through a website open only to participants, and include at-home exercise demonstration videos, research news, discussion boards, success stories, infographics for exercise recommendations, etc.
