Are you a breast cancer survivor and done with primary treatment? You may be eligible to earn up to $160 in Amazon gift cards.

Health behaviors such as exercise, diet, and sleep have significant effects on overall well-being. Engaging in these healthy behaviors after breast cancer treatment can be especially important for improving prognosis and overall quality of life. Yet, sometimes survivors experience psychological barriers that make it hard to stay healthy.

In this study, we want to understand how psychological processes, such as emotions and motivation, affect health behaviors among post-treatment breast cancer survivors. This knowledge will help us develop a unique psychological intervention to help breast cancer survivors live healthier lives.

  • Attend a 90-minute orientation session on Zoom in which you will learn more about our study and our mission, learn how to complete study procedures, and complete a baseline questionnaire. Compensation: $20 gift card
