Gardening may improve diet, physical health of cancer survivors

Mamie Martin is participating in the UAB study Harvest for Health, which pairs cancer survivors with master gardeners from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. The master gardeners help the cancer survivors grow vegetable gardens. The purpose is to see if a cancer survivor eats better with fresh vegetables at their disposal and if they see improvement in physical function and overall health as they tend to their garden.
