Exercise Medicine

Considerable research and clinical evidence has established that exercise may be beneficial for people with cancer; however, there is no one-size-fits-all
approach.1,2 Every person’s circumstances are unique and these should be taken into account. Tailored exercise programs designed by an exercise professional that include both aerobic and resistance training activities have been shown to provide benefits.3 To learn more about incorporating exercise during your cancer journey, please speak with your doctor and treatment team.
