New Publication Alert! Allyson Diggins along with Lauren Hearn and Dr. Nicole Ennis recently published a manuscript in Psycho-Oncology entitled “Physical activity in Black breast cancer survivors: implications for quality of life and mood at baseline and 6-month follow-up”. The study sought to examine the influence of physical activity on quality of life and negative mood in a sample of Black breast cancer survivors to determine if physical activity (dichotomized) predicted mean differences in negative mood and quality of life in this population. The researchers concluded that baseline physical activity served protective functions for breast cancer survivors over time. Thus, developing culturally relevant physical activity interventions specifically for Black breast cancer survivors may prove vital to improving quality of life and mood in this population.
