Prostate Cancer Patients + Exercise During a Pandemic
ProstatePedia journalist, Jessica Myers-Schecter, interviews Dr Newton about cancer patients exercising during the COVID-19 pandemic and how he and his team have transitioned their clinical practice and processes to tele exercise medicine. In this interview Dr Newton explains why it is so important for cancer patients to keep exercising everyday even when they are confined to their home. As noted in a previous post cancer patients are at higher risk of developing COVID-19 and higher likelihood of poor disease outcomes.
Using Internet solutions for delivery of exercise prescriptions to patients’ smartphone, tablet or computer combined with video chat, MyExerciseMedicine is providing tele exercise medicine to keep our patients and clients exercising safely and effectively.
