obesity and cancer in those at risk, as well
as ensure that those who are already
affected are able to improve their long-term
health and prognosis. Through education,
individualized exercise programs,
counseling, pharmacological intervention,
and psycho-social support, our goal is to
reduce an individual's modifiable risk
factors and improve their quality of life.
