Study Information
Yoga and Wellness Program for Breast Cancer Survivors Study

This study at the University of California, Los Angeles, is comparing the effects that yoga and a Wellness Seminar series have on breast cancer survivors’ energy, mood, physical function, and immune and endocrine systems. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 60 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Love Research Army members on October 21, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment on February 3, 2010, after the Love Research Army provided them with 42 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
