Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a leading risk factor for cardiovascular-disease-related death among breast-cancer survivors (BCS). Adhering to dietary and physical activity recommendations can help reduce MetS, but many women face challenges with lifestyle behavior change after cancer treatment, and few programs exist to support such efforts. Evidence-based habit development strategies in combination with OT intervention could reduce MetS risk factors among rural BCS.
