Physical Activity Interventions for Endometrial Cancer Survivors – Dr. Amerigo Rossi, EdD – Long Island University Brooklyn



Endometrial cancer survivors are the least physically active of all cancer survivors, with only 33% participating in regular physical activity. They have a higher risk for developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer recurrence.
