Dr. Prue Cormie has been one of the leaders in the field of exercise oncology for many years now. She has carried out a wealth of research looking at how exercise can improve physical and mental health in individuals with cancer both during and after treatment.
In this episode, we chat about how exercise (particularly higher levels) are linked to increased survival in cancer survivors. We also chat about EX-MED Cancer, a program that Prue has rolled out in Melbourne, Australia. EX-MED is a free community based exercise program for cancer survivors that is grounded in the latest scientific evidence. EX-MED also looks to become the gold standard of education for professionals as they provide webinars and continuing education for people working in this area.
