The goal is to educate women about a healthier diet and physical activity choices that will have a positive influence on their overall health and may decrease the risk of a recurrence.

Exciting new research suggests dietary change and physical activity, in association with weight loss, may reduce risk of recurrence. It also improves overall health - an important consideration given the long survival of many women with breast cancer.

Program staff include:

  • Nurse Clinician Linda Muraca, the program coordinator who currently offers a breast health program for well women;
  • Janet Greenglass-Kosky, B.A., B.A.A. Nutritionist, who presents nutritional strategies;
  • Lee Scott, B.A.Sc., M.A., the founder of Wow Power Walking. Lee has been certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a personal trainer and Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant. She is also certified by Can-Fit-Pro as a Fitness Instructor Specialist. 
      

Participants of the program receive a binder with useful information and logbooks where they can record their dietary and physical activities. They will also receive useful equipment they can use during the program and afterwards including a pedometer, water bottle, exercise band, etc. These costs will be covered by donated funds as part of our Table of Plenty Program.
