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.
