Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Physical Activity Intervention for Lung Cancer Survivors
The purpose of this study is to learn how many lung cancer survivors will agree to a physical activity program. We also want to know if lung cancer survivors benefit from this program. This information will help us to develop our services for lung cancer survivors.
