"The Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Healthy Survivorship phone application was recently launched at "Care Beyond Cancer: An Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Summit." The app targets cancer survivors from ages 15-39 and was developed at Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health.
The AYA Healthy Survivorship app assesses health habits using an interactive assessment tool that provides a score for lifestyle, physical activity, diet, nutrition, and well-being. It also offers personalized tips for being more active, eating better, and living a healthier life and contains information and related links about the late effects of treatment, provided by CureSearch for Children's Cancer.
Importantly, the app links users to a secure Healthy Survivorship website (www.healthysurvivorship.org) where they can develop a cancer survivorship plan which will provide guidance about follow-up care and fostering healthy survivorship by engaging in health promoting behaviors and establishing a survivorship plan.
The app can be downloaded free of charge at the iTunes store.
