Seminar Title: Physical activity during cancer survivorship: Expanding our reach for public health

 

Seminar Abstract: This talk will highlight the unique health challenges of accelerated aging after cancer and how physical activity may be leveraged to improve functional health during survivorship. Dr. Salerno will discuss her work examining the relationships between physical activity and functional outcomes as well as how these findings inform the broad implementation of physical activity programs. This talk will span behavioral science, kinesiology, and epidemiology to emphasize the importance of expanding our reach beyond clinical and university settings for sustained health after cancer.
