Full Description

This is a pilot randomized trial of older adults 60y and above planned to undergo Autologous Stem Cell Transplant for Multiple Myeloma. Eligible participants will be randomized (like flipping a coin) to one of two study conditions: 1) an 8 week long home-based prehabilitation exercise program delivered using a telehealth format or 2) an 8-week long nutrition counseling (attention control group). Assessments will occur at baseline, post-intervention (during transplant) and at 12-weeks post-transplant. Investigators will assess the feasibility and acceptability of our program as well as preliminary impact of the program on physical functioning during these time-periods.
