Are you a young adult cancer survivor interested in getting more physically active?

Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are studying ways to promote physical activity among young adult cancer survivors using Fitbit activity trackers and Facebook. They are seeking volunteers to enroll in a 12-month research study that tests a physical activity program designed specifically for young adult cancer survivors.

If you participate you will receive a Fitbit activity tracker, information about physical activity, a digital smart scale, and access to a Facebook group. You will be asked to complete online questionnaires 4 times and may receive access to a personalized physical activity website. You will receive up to $160 for completion of all study questionnaires and measurements. The entire 12-month study can be completed online.

You may be eligible if you:

— are 18 to 39 years old

— were diagnosed with cancer (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer) at age 18 or older

— have completed cancer treatment

Additional eligibility criteria apply.
