This week A New Angle hosts four guests doing amazing work to help us understand the role of exercise in treating cancer. These folks will headline the upcoming Exercise in Lifestyle Medicine and Oncology Care Conference at the University of Montana, July 12th and 13th. In this episode, Justin speaks with one guest who was part of the largest study of weight training in breast cancer survivors and learns why the University of Montana, as an R1 research university, is a great place to study the effects of exercise on cancer. Justin speaks with a breast cancer survivor about how important exercise, specifically dragon boat rowing, was to her recovery, and asks the guests what it’s been like trying to get people to embrace healthier lifestyles.
