This event has past.
Location: Counterpart Resource Centre
Address: Level 5, 210 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, 3000
This is a session for women with metastatic cancer breast or gynaecological cancer to attend a webinar screening at our Resource Centre in Melbourne. You can also join the webinar from home.
The benefits of exercise are most effective when it’s tailored to individuals. For people living with metastatic disease it can be hard to know where to start. Our presenter will speak about starting to exercise in a safe way, knowing your limits, getting good advice about what is appropriate for you to do, and, importantly, what you shouldn’t be doing.
