I was delighted to deliver the keynote presentation and lead an interactive session at an event that aimed to raise awareness about diet and lifestyle among breast cancer survivors. The event was focused on some of the unique challenges that breast cancer survivors face when it comes to changing eating habits following their cancer diagnosis.
When it comes to lowering breast cancer risk for older women, the research is clear that both physical activity and staying a healthy weight play an important role. Evidence also suggests — but is not as strong — that these factors may improve survival after diagnosis of breast cancer.
Harvest of Hope: A Day at the Farm brought a community together to learn about the connection between agriculture and healthy eating. Find out how the event came together in this three-part series about how you can encourage healthful, cancer-fighting eating in your community.
