Cancer and cancer therapy can significantly
impair physical function and cardiopulmonary health. This decline can occur
during cancer therapy and may continue long after therapy is completed. Discuss
the impact of the toxicities of cancer therapy on the cardiopulmonary system
and how this leads to loss of physical function. Learn how exercise training
can diminish these effects, and review a model of oncology rehabilitation used
at Fletcher Allen Health Care both during and after cancer treatment.
6:00 - 7:30 PM, including a Q&A session
