The Exercise Oncology Lab (PI: Dr. Linda Trinh) at the University of Toronto has 2 exciting study opportunities for prostate cancer survivors from across Canada. Both can be done from the comfort of your home.
iStride: The first study is testing a distance-based program to help prostate cancer survivors sit less and move more. The study is all done in the comfort of their own homes and no study visits are required.

P4PA: Researchers from the University of Toronto are looking for cancer survivors who are looking to become physically active to participate in a 6-week program to help them adopt and maintain physical activity (click on this link for the P4PA poster). This study also can be done remotely. Participants would first attend an educational workshop about physical activity hosted by a qualified exercise professional, then matched with a trained peer mentor to meet weekly for a 1-on-1 discussion about how to adopt and maintain regular physical activity.
