Breast Cancer and Fitness
March 11, 2010
Paying attention to nutrition and maintaining a healthy body weight can be advantageous to breast cancer survivors in reducing their risk of cancer in the future. This advice comes from Donald W. Northfelt, M.D., Hematology/Oncology, and Associate Medical Director of the Breast Clinic at Mayo Clinic in Arizona. In the video, Dr. Northfelt introduces a patient he attests is a "champion" for following that advice, given her serious commitment to fitness and nutrition. The patient talks about her experience at workshops on nutrition and fitness developed by Mayo nurses in the Breast Clinic and put on at a fitness center.
