Project LIFT: Lifestyle intervention to promote fitness in transplantation

Principal Investigators: Marina Serper, MD, MS; Iwan Barankay, PhD; Peter Reese, MD

Objectives: 1) To determine whether use of an accelerometer device (Misfit tracker) and financial loss-incentives paired with health trivia information vs. the accelerometer use alone increases walking among kidney and liver transplant recipients, and 2) To evaluate whether the interventions are associated with lower weight and changes in body fat composition.
