Associations between the Built Environment and Physical Activity among Rural Cancer Survivors

by Pritika Singh
This study explored associations between environmental constructs and physical activity (PA) in rural cancer survivors (RCS). We found that more equipment in the home for exercise (OR=1.3, 95% CI:1.1-1.6), greater environmental support for PA (OR=1.3, 95% CI:1.1-1.6), lower street connectivity (OR=0.5, 95% CI:0.2-1.0), higher neighborhood aesthetics (OR=2.8, 95% CI:1.1-7.1), and the home environment (OR=1.3, 95% CI:1.1-1.6) were associated with meeting PA recommendations. Findings suggest the importance of the built environment in PA promotion among RCS.
