Abstract : Since the study is still on-going, there are no significant research findings to report. The research component of this training grant has met with successes and challenges. The study protocol has been finalized, Institutional Review Board approval to conduct this research was obtained, the pilot study has been completed, and the randomized controlled trial is ongoing. However, recruitment ot eligible breast cancer survivors into the study has progressed at a slower pace than anticipated. The PI is committed to continuing recruitment efforts for this study. The training component of this training grant is proceeding successfully and as planned. The PI has gained additional expertise in Behavioral Oncology and in breast cancer research specifically through a combination of formal and informal didactic activities at Moffitt Cancer Center and through attendance at scientific meetings. The PI has also increased her statistical expertise through coursework completion and her mastery of Motivational Interviewing clinical skills through workshop completion.
