Taking Charge: Healthy LIFEstyle Choices after Breast Cancer Program

Taking Charge: Healthy LIFEstyle Choices after Breast Cancer involves small groups and personalized guidance.

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.

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.

  • Linda Muraca, nurse clinician, 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;
