Adult female cancer patients and survivors of all skill levels are welcome to attend a no-cost fitness class held twice a week and led by Dana-Farber exercise physiologist Nancy Campbell. Held Tuesdays from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. and Fridays from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., the class includes a mix of strength training, stretching, and core muscle work. No experience is necessary, but registration is required and patients in active treatment need a medical clearance from their physician. To register for the class, call the Adult Survivorship Program at 617-632-4523.
