Corporate Champions who partner with the American Institute for Cancer Research stand at the forefront of the fight against cancer

The Annual AICR Research Conference is the most authoritative source for information on diet, obesity, physical activity and cancer.

The Continuous Update Project (CUP) is an ongoing program that analyzes global research on how diet, nutrition and physical activity affect cancer risk and survival.

A major milestone in cancer research, the Third Expert Report analyzes and synthesizes the evidence gathered in CUP reports and serves as a vital resource for anyone interested in preventing cancer.

Personalized feedback of wearable biological sensor data to promote active living in cancer survivors

Project Description

This study aims to promote daily physical activity in cancer survivors who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D) by using a personalized biological-based feedback strategy. T2D is one of the most common co-occurring conditions in cancer survivors and can worsen cancer-related health outcomes, especially in those who are insufficiently active. Dr. Liao hypothesizes that seeing the immediate impacts of exercise on their biological status will motivate cancer survivors to exercise. Dr. Liao will use real-time data from continuous glucose monitor to demonstrate the acute impact of physical activity and measure daily activity levels using wearable trackers. As wearable sensor technology is constantly advancing, this study is the first step to explore how we can use wearable sensors to help people make a direct connection between their daily behaviors and health outcomes.
