Prostate Cancer Research Study
The Comprehensive Lifestyle Improvement Program for Men with Prostate Cancer (CLIPP) is a lifestyle modification intervention study. The study focuses on changing lifestyle behaviors such as being more physically active and eating a healthier diet.
We are currently seeking:
Prostate Cancer Survivors on Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT)
Diagnosed with Stage I, II or II Prostate Cancer

The purpose of Project Phase is to examine the relationship between the menstrual cycle and quitting smoking. Participants complete phone counseling sessions and use Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) patches to help with quitting smoking.This study is being conducted by Alicia Allen, PhD, MPH, and Uma Nair, PhD.
The LIvES study has recruited 1,200 ovarian cancer survivors nationally to participate in a lifestyle intervention supported by the Gynecologic Oncology Group and the National Cancer Institute. The main study objective is to determine if the lifestyle intervention group experiences improved quality of life and survival in comparison to the usual care group. Additional objectives of this study involve assessment of nutrients in your blood.
The Women's Health Initiative (WHI) is a long-term national health study focused on strategies for preventing heart disease, breast and colorectal cancer, and osteoporotic fractures in postmenopausal women. Launched in 1993, the WHI enrolled 161,808 women aged 50-79 into one or more randomized Clinical Trials (CT), testing the health effects of hormone therapy (HT), dietary modification (DM), and/or calcium and Vitamin D supplementation (CaD) or to an Observational Study (OS). At the end of the initial study period in 2005, WHI Extension Studies (2005-2010, 2010-2020) continued follow-up of all women who consented.
This ground-breaking study changed the way health care providers prevent and treat some of the major diseases impacting postmenopausal women. Results from the WHI Hormone Trials have been estimated to have already saved $35.2 billion in direct medical costs in the US alone. To date, WHI has published over 1,400 articles and approved and funded 289 ancillary studies.
The WISH study is currently recruiting cancer survivors who are women and currently smoke (traditional combustible) cigarettes and who have radiation therapy in their treatment plan. The study includes personal coaching over the telephone to help participants quit smoking as well as support a healthier lifestyle (diet, exercise, stress management). The WISH study will help researchers to understand the impact of quitting smoking on radiation treatment outcomes.
The goal of the Be Smoke Free study is to compare two quit smoking programs delivered by telephone coaches. One is a standard quit smoking program that uses behavioral techniques, and the other uses a technique called guided imagery to help people quit smoking.
In the United States, chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and obesity are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems. These chronic diseases are more prevalent in underserved populations based on race/ethnicity, geographical location, and income levels. Despite these differences, engaging individuals in research and other health initiatives remains difficult. To address this concern, we are developing the Nosotros Network as a community-based outreach and engagement effort designed to work together with and through groups in Southern Arizona. Our goal is to increase health awareness in the community and provide a direct link to research and health initiatives designed to improve the health and well-being of our community.
