  1. MVPA moderate-vigorous physical activity, CI confidence interval
  2. a Pooled mean change estimated by comparison of marginal means for the effect of time (baseline / post program), estimated balanced across strata (cancer council: A, B, C, D) from model that includes effects of time, cancer council, and their two-way interaction
