Deirdre Kiely, MS, MPA, RN, ANP, nurse practitioner, Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Medical Center, discusses the results of a breast cancer lifestyle intervention study.

Kiely says the study enrolled patients from a database of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. Researchers reached out to patients who’s BMI was over 25 and offered them the opportunity to enroll in the lifestyle intervention study.

The study, primarily based on exercise, was a number of sessions over the course of several weeks. Although there was a limited enrollment, patients experienced the benefits of exercise, Kiely says, as well as an improvement in peer support.

Kiely says she is hopeful that a similar program can be continued in the future.​
