As Covid-19 continues to dominate much of normal life, we are finding ourselves exploring new ways to maintain fitness and wellness whilst keeping safe and living with cancer. For people living with a medical condition who have been advised to stay at home for an extended period of time, this can be a challenge.
To help, we have created a series of videos in partnership with Philipp Zimmer, Researcher and Professor of Performance Health at TU Dortmund University, and Ipsen UK & Ireland. These videos discuss the benefits of exercise for people living with cancer and why it’s important to stay physically active during this time.
This three-part series will explore the following topics:
- Exercise and cancer: why it’s important to stay active
- Exercise and its impact on the immune system and therapy delivery
- Types of exercise you can do and how to stay healthy
