Exercise is, of course, important for health – but new research indicates that exercise can make cancer treatments both more tolerable and more effective. Might exercise be something that doctors could prescribe?

Prue Cormie is committed to improving the health and lives of people with cancer. Her research has led her to this conclusion: exercise should be part of a doctor’s prescription toolkit.

Prue is a Principal Research Fellow at Australian Catholic University’s Institute for Health and Ageing and an Accredited Exercise Physiologist. Her research and clinical work focuses on the role of exercise in the management of cancer. She has practiced and researched in various exercise clinics and research laboratories in Australia and the United States and has a PhD in exercise science.
