DeGuzman et al. (2019) should be commended for their article “Built and Natural Environment Barriers and Facilitators to Physical Activity in Rural, Suburban, and Small Urban Neighborhoods.” The work is a meaningful contribution to the oncology field, given the health disparity among patients with cancer living in rural and suburban communities. Nurses need to be part of the larger conversation and advocate for patients through policy reform that supports access to an equitable built environment. DeGuzman et al.’s (2019) article starts this conversation. In this letter, I wish to build on that initial conversation by deepening the discussion of built environment and costs as significant barriers to physical activity in cancer survivors.
