Lifestyle medicine is the use of lifestyle activities (such as exercise, diet and stress management) to help patients before, during and after their cancer treatment. The Lifestyle Medicine Program provides personalized one-on-one consultations for any patient with cancer or a history of cancer who wants to improve their physical fitness, nutrition, quality of life or cancer prognosis.
Prior to your first visit, you will need to complete a needs assessment to help us understand your personal priorities. Our experts will then evaluate and assess your personal needs and work in partnership with you to help set and achieve your personal goals; including:
