Associations between interpersonal/social support and physical activity in rural cancer

by Gabrielle Skorey
Social support (SS) is associated with increased physical activity (PA) in adults, which contributes to reduced risk of cancer incidence and recurrence. However, less is known about the contribution of different types of SS to PA in cancer survivors. This study examined the associations between tangible, appraisal, and belonging SS and PA in rural cancer survivors. Understanding these associations is important to increasing PA and reducing risk of recurrence in rural cancer survivors.
