Researchers at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, developed a program that they hope will help Black/African-American breast cancer survivors increase their physical activity and improve their diet. This study is looking at the effectiveness of the program in improving the quality of health behaviors. The researchers wanted to enroll 50 Black/African-American breast cancer survivors in the study. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on October 12, 2011. When the research team closed enrollment on February 7, 2013, the Army of Women had provided them with 23 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
