Obesity and Cancer
This webinar was structured along a translational research perspective (clinical applications to policy) and gave an overview of three NCI-supported projects. Presenters provided the scientific rationale for exercise interventions and addressed opportunities and challenges to integrating physical activity in specific settings and to implementing state-level school physical education policies affecting the lives of young cancer survivors.
This webinar is part of the NCI Obesity & Cancer Webinar Series, which aims to foster cross-disciplinary research on obesity that can help prevent, treat, and/or control cancer.
