Join the Discussion!

The East Branch of the Falmouth Public Library is very pleased to host a discussion entitled Cancer Survivorship:  Achieving Mind & Body Wellness, lead by Kristine Whaples, MS, RCEP, CDE, CET on Wednesday, March 16, 2-4 PM.  Kristine is a registered clinical exercise physiologist and certified diabetes educator who coordinates the Living Fit for You! Cancer Wellness Program for Falmouth Hospital.

Overall wellness is an essential component of cancer recovery and quality survivorship.  There is a definite relationship between lifestyle and post-cancer therapy survivorship. It has been well-established that through increased exercise, a healthy plant-based diet, and stress management, survivors will benefit from:

• reduced risk of recurrence

• increased survival and longevity

• reduced risk of toxic cancer treatment-related side effects

• management of overwhelming fatigue

• reduced risk of other chronic diseases

• improved quality of life

Our discussion will focus on recommendations for nutrition, exercise and stress reduction. You will gain insight on how to move forward, develop a wellness plan and achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Please register by contacting the East Branch at 508-548-6340 or the Reference Department at the Main Library 508-457-2555 x 6 or info@falmouthpubliclibrary.org.
