Research Project:

Physical Activity and Advanced Stage Lung Cancer


Dr. Vardy will determine if a physical activity program will help improve fatigue, quality of life, and overall physical function for patients with advanced-stage lung cancer. This study has the potential to change standard of care for lung cancer patients by adding physical activity as a non-toxic, inexpensive treatment option, which could improve patients’ quality of life.
