Healthcare Providers, caregivers and individuals living with cancer in-large know the value of exercise, despite that purposeful movement has been slow in translating to the majority of patients, caregivers and even some healthcare providers.

Medical Centers are not always positioned to use fitness as preventative (prophylactic) or therapy for their patients, but there is a trend towards awareness.

Learn, be motivated, and be inspired by top experts in the fields of Oncology, Physical Therapy, Exercise Physiology, Sports Medicine and Health Coaching in this one hour online panel discussion.
