SPEAKER and SEMINAR INFORMATION:
Dr. Marshall is a board-certified Medical Oncologist and Breast Cancer specialist. She has practiced oncology for 22 years in Connecticut, New Mexico and California. She is a partner at Epicare Cancer Center at the Emeryville location. She encourages her patients and people around her to look at their lifestyle to see what changes they can make to improve health and lower risk of cancer. Low muscle mass and high insulin levels in the body increase the risk of cancer and cancer progression. There are many things that affect insulin levels in the body. Stress, diet, sleep habits and exercise are the main factors that people have the ability to change. Strength training is the most potent exercise to decrease insulin in the body.
Dr. Marshall will discuss exercise and strength training as it applies to survivorship as well as lifestyle modifications such as dietary changes, stress reduction and sleep habits that can lower the risk of cancer recurrence. She has an interactive body weight exercise exchange to show the audience that anyone can do strength training!! She wants to share these nontoxic ways to help decrease the risk of cancer recurrence or decrease cancer risk in people who have not been affected by cancer!!
