Taylor Avenue Building, Richmond Room

This talk will highlight unique health challenges in cancer and aging and how physical activity may improve cognitive, physical and psychosocial function during cancer survivorship.

Elizabeth Salerno, of the National Cancer Institute, will discuss findings from physical activity interventions and the modifiable health indicators that may be amenable to such interventions in a large cohort of diverse cancer populations. This talk will span behavioral science, kinesiology and epidemiology to highlight the need for scalable, community-based physical activity programs that can be implemented into the standard of care after cancer.
