Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Cardiac Rehabilitation to Improve Breast Cancer Outcomes
To develop a novel, proactive cardiac rehabilitation program for breast cancer survivors at enhanced risk of cardiovascular disease. Considering this program is secondary to the Michigan Medicine Cardiac Rehabilitation program's goal to manage cardiac patients, the hybrid program has been designed that limits utilization of cardiac rehabilitation to 12 visits over the first eight weeks of the intervention compared to 32 visits for cardiovascular patients.
