About The Study: Although exercise was able to reduce depressive symptoms among health care workers, adherence was low toward the end of this randomized clinical trial. Optimizing adherence to exercise programming represents an important challenge to help maintain improvements in mental health among health care workers.

Authors: Vincent Gosselin Boucher, Ph.D., and Eli M. Puterman, Ph.D., of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, are the corresponding authors.
