Health behaviors and colorectal cancer survival in the multiethnic cohort study

Research Type: Colorectal Cancer

Project Description

Our research aims to improve colorectal cancer (CRC) survivorship. CRC is the fourth most common cancer and second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Research is needed to identify ways for people diagnosed with CRC to improve their quality and length of life after diagnosis. Our hypothesis is that healthy weight, regular physical activity and a nutritious diet after diagnosis will be associated with longer survival. We will use data from the racially/ ethnically diverse, population-based, Multiethnic Cohort Study to examine whether health behaviors after CRC diagnosis are associated with mortality. This project will inform evidence-based guidelines for patients and clinicians to improve CRC survivorship care and will help people make informed choices regarding health behaviors to reduce the risk of death after diagnosis.
