KIN W80 Exercise and Nutrition: Adjunct Therapeutic Modalities for Cancer Patients. A growing body of research shows that exercise and diet play a significant role in the prevention of disease. Less well known is the growing consensus that exercise and dietary therapy employed during cancer treatments improve survival rates and lessen the loss of fat-free mass associated with the disease/treatment process. This course will investigate what we know about cancer- its development, diagnosis and treatment, lifestyle factors associated with its incidence, and the side effects and persistent effects of cancer treatments, including surgery. It will then turn to the prevailing evidence of using exercise and dietary therapy to improve cancer outcomes. Students will study the exercise and diet prescriptive process, the role of health behavior change counseling, and factors involved in designing a cancer rehabilitation program. Students majoring in Kinesiology may wish to use the course as a platform for preparation for the American College of Sports Medicine/American Cancer Society’s Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer certification exam. This course may fulfill an elective in the Kinesiology minor. Prerequisite: One core Biology course and one core Personal Fitness course. N. Meyer, J. Walton. 8:30 a.m. to noon.
