Studies will run in Charlottetown and Montague areas

Researchers from UPEI’s Active Living Lab are seeking people with cancer, or who have previously had cancer, to participate in exercise programs in Montague and Charlottetown. 

In Charlottetown, the exercise program is open to participants who have been previously diagnosed with any type of cancer. 

In Montague, the program is open to anyone who has been previously diagnosed with breast cancer.

Participants in both programs will perform a supervised exercise training program, based on their fitness, skill level and personal interests. 

Participants will receive a fitness test the first and last week of the program. No previous experience is necessary. 

For more information, or to sign up, contact Travis Saunders at ExerciseRx@upei.ca.

This project is funded through My Active Health, an initiative of the Breast Cancer Foundation of Quebec, funded through Ultramar.
