UVM College of Medicine Marathon Team
On Sunday, May 26, 2013 The University of Vermont College of Medicine Marathon Team will be running the Keybank Vermont City Marathon to raise funds and awareness for the Steps To Wellness Program at the Vermont Cancer Center.
STEPS TO WELLNESS:
Helps cancer survivors maintain function during initial oncology therapy and provides a pathway toward improved fitness and quality of life after initial therapy. The program includes a physical therapy evaluation, medical assessment, individualized exercise prescription, education, and the collection of physiological and psychological measures to evaluate and improve the program. This research will enhance understanding of the potential benefits of rehabilitation for cancer survivors.
