Fitness During and After Cancer Treatment: An IC Research Project

Ithaca College Clinical faculty member and physical therapist, Jill Mayer, along with 7 physical therapy graduate students are conducting a research project at Ithaca College. They are looking to identify individuals who have a diagnosis of cancer (any type) or are newly in remission, and who are interested in receiving an individualized home exercise program. Participants must be currently going through active cancer treatment or are less than 90 days post their final treatment. If this describes you, would you be interested?

Click here for more information. If you are interested, please contact Jill Mayer by phone, 607-274-5825 or by email JMayer@ithaca.edu.
