Free exercise center for cancer survivors launched
A new fitness center for cancer survivors opened in the fall at the Cancer Therapy & Research Center. Stacey Young-McCaughan, RN, Ph.D., AOCN, professor of psychiatry, crafted the program based on her 12 years of work with hundreds of cancer survivors at Brooke Army Medical Center. In that time she has built the evidence showing that all people, regardless of type of cancer, stage of disease, treatment, or previous experience with exercise, can benefit from an exercise program tailored specifically for them. The fitness center is free and open to all cancer patients in the area, regardless of where treatment is sought. For more information, visit CTRC.
