A New Study for Prostate Cancer Survivors and Fighters

 Researchers at the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center are recruiting participants for a new study to improve health for prostate cancer fighters and survivors.

Approximately 20% of all cancer survivors are men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Project HERO (Health Empowerment and Recovery Outcomes) is trying to learn how different mind and body exercise programs affect how men with prostate cancer recover and thrive.

The study involves 12 week sessions starting in August after screening and some tests, and follow- up for a year. Several stipends are paid.

You may be eligible if you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, are age 60 or older, and live within 75 miles of Albuquerque. For more information and to see if you are eligible to participate, please contact the UNM HERO team at 272-6557.
