The power of exercise

Under the watchful supervision of our physiotherapist and kinesiologist with the assistance of specially trained volunteers, participants learn how to improve their endurance, balance, flexibility and strength, leading to better tolerance of treatment side effects and improving their quality of life.

And you don’t have to be a fashionista to appreciate the variety of stylish leggings worn by our staff!

Bons conseils du Dr Michael Pollak.

CIUSSS Centre-Ouest Montréal / CIUSSS West-Central Montreal

Mais quels sont les liens entre ce que nous mangeons et la prévention de la maladie ? Est-ce que notre alimentation peut avoir un impact pendant que l’on reçoit des traitements contre le cancer ?

Pour nous en dire davantage sur ces questions, Carl Thériault s’entretient avec Dr Michael Pollak, Directeur du Centre de prévention du cancer au Centre de cancer Segal, à l’Hôpital général juif.
