What We Do

​The HEALTh Program is a unique blend of education, exercise and peer support offered to assist women being treated for and recovering from breast cancer. Our program provides:

  • Individually prescribed aerobic (cardio) and resistance training exercise
  • Education about topics related to exercise, breast cancer and heart health
  • A supportive place for women who are at different stages of their breast cancer treatment

A multidisciplinary team, including a dietitian, a social worker, a kinesiologist and medical staff, leads our in-class education sessions. External professionals, such as a lymphedema specialist, also participate periodically.​
