Study participants are being sought for research on exercise and colon cancer.
Kinesiology PhD student Erin McGowan, who is studying Exercise and Health Psychology, has planned a one-year long study designed to increase exercise and physical activity behaviour in relatives of colon cancer patients.
Eligible participants are:
* A first- or a second-degree relative of a colon cancer patient
* Between the ages of 18 and 60 years
* Healthy to exercise
* Currently inactive (not exercising regularly- less than twice a week)
The study contains three phases which involve the completion of questionnaires, a lab-based exercise program with fitness testing and body scans, and transition to a home-based exercise program, also with body scans and fitness testing, as well as use of activity sensors.
Potential candidates should contact Erin McGowan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-661-3211.
