The UAB Exercise and Cancer Research Team is a team of experts at the University of Alabama at Birmingham with the knowledge and skills necessary to specifically address your physical activity needs if you have been affected by cancer.
We provide you fee-for-service support through either personalized 1-on-1 exercise sessions or group education class offerings. Our trainers can also work with your healthcare team to guide you in the right direction with regard to a more physically active lifestyle. Through an initial consultation, we can become familiar with individual needs and tailor the exercise prescription for you.
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network, American Cancer Society and American College of Sports Medicine all agree that exercise can be beneficial to cancer survivors. Our staff can help you gain the knowledge and confidence to play a role in the success of your own treatment and recovery.
