New data is providing greater evidence about the impact of healthy behaviors on survivorship outcomes
KA were the least acculturated, more likely to report health behavior changes, and reported the greatest satisfaction with the doctor-patient relationship.
MA were the most acculturated, least likely to report health behavior changes
Lower acculturation level and better-patient-doctor relationship for Korean-Americans may be related to sample characteristics including immigration history, language, and SES.
