About FITNET

FITNET is a program funded by the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center that is designed to teach young adult cancer survivors ways to start a moderate-intensity exercise program (i.e., similar to a brisk walk) and increase their physical activity.

FITNET is also a research study that will test the feasibility and effectiveness of an exercise program delivered through Facebook to improve physical activity among young adult cancer survivors. If you are eligible and enroll, you will be randomly assigned into 1 of 2 groups (which means you can't choose your group):

  • Facebook group and exercise website for 12 weeks
  • Facebook group for 12 weeks

If you enroll, you will be one of approximately 100 men and women participating in the study.
