Contemp Clin Trials 2021 Mar 27;102:106296. Epub 2021 Jan 27.

Department of Psychology, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA, United States of America.

Approximately 40-50% of pediatric cancer survivors (PCS) are overweight or obese; increasing their risk for metabolic syndrome and other negative long-term physical health complications.
