Research has revealed that certain lifestyle factors and health behaviours can have a positive impact upon quality of life, chronic disease risk factors, and other health-related areas, for women after cancer.

Professor Debra Anderson at Griffith University is leading a team of Australian health researchers, and is undertaking a project to investigate the effectiveness of a 12 week structured lifestyle program (Younger Women’s Wellness after Cancer Program) in improving health and wellness in younger women who have had breast, blood or gynaecological cancer. The Program focuses on a range of health behaviours and has been developed especially for women after cancer based on the latest research evidence.
