Member of the APCaRI training program, Dr. Anais Medina Martin, selected as a remarkable woman for the International Women’s Day at the Caucus Meeting in Edmonton

Last March 8th, 2017 the Legislative Assembly of Alberta held a special session in order to celebrate the International Women’s Day in our province. Some of Elected Members of the Assembly invited one or two women from their constituency with an outstanding story to be celebrated in that special meeting. Among of that exquisite selection, Dr. Anais Medina Martin had the honor to be chosen, together with Mrs. Yvette Labiuk, as a member of the Department of Oncology at the University of Alberta.  This support is again reaffirming the personal potential that we host at the APCaRI.

Lifestyle Management Program in Alberta – TrueNTH

The TrueNTH (pronounced True North) Lifestyle Management (LM) Program is part of the Global TrueNTH network funded by Movember (in partnership with Prostate Cancer Canada nationally). TrueNTH LM aims to improve the survivorship experience for men living with prostate cancer through physical activity, nutrition, and stress-reduction resources (programs and educational materials).

TrueNTH LM includes a free 12-week physical activity and yoga program with classes designed specifically to address the health and treatment related concerns for men living with prostate cancer. Men can also access a comprehensive online portal with tools, education, and home-based programming for help with staying active, reducing stress, and maintaining a proper diet.

In Calgary, TrueNTH LM has partnered with City of Calgary Recreation to offer programs at four different locations throughout the city. Registration is ongoing for men. In Edmonton, the Cancer Rehabilitation Clinic at the University of Alberta will be hosting a TrueNTH LM program starting in January 2016. Future programs will be announced as they become available. Men living in rural Alberta are able to join an online-based program at lifestyle.truenth.ca

All men who have been previously diagnosed with prostate cancer regardless of when they were diagnosed or what treatment they received can join the TrueNTH LM online portal or join a community program. Each person will undergo an initial health screening to ensure physical activity is safe.
