WHAT: The American College of Sports Medicine, the global authority for exercise science and sports medicine, is bringing together leading subject matter experts to update its current exercise recommendations for cancer survivors based on the latest science, as well as add new recommendations regarding the effect of exercise on cancer prevention.

Co-chaired by ACSM President-elect Kathryn Schmitz, Ph.D., FACSM and ACSM Fellow Charles Matthews, Ph.D., FACSM, the roundtable includes an esteemed group of leaders representing select organizations on the forefront of health promotion and the fight against cancer.

The work done in support of each objective will be published in peer-reviewed literature during the first quarter of 2019.

WHEN: March 12-13, 2018

WHO: The roundtable is being convened by the American College of Sports Medicine and Hosted by Sunflower Wellness.
