ASU Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation Recovery and Rejuvenation Research Study

ASU’s Recovery and Rejuvenation research study is directed at breast cancer survivors who want to feel better, more energetic.  The study provides eligible women with free classes: 1 hour per week for 8 weeks, starting in January 2020 and ending in early March 2020. We are comparing three different techniques that have all been shown to provide effective support for breast cancer survivors. We want to better understand how the techniques work so we can continue to increase their effectiveness. Participants in the study will help us increase our knowledge of how we can help other women diagnosed with breast cancer in the future.
