Public talk: ‘Keeping Fit, Stopping Cancer’ from the Irish Cancer Society

The Irish Cancer Society has announced that its next Decoding Cancer public talk ‘Keeping Fit, Stopping Cancer’ will take place at 1pm on Wednesday 22 August at The Wisdom Centre, 25 Cork Street, Dublin 8.

The public talk will focus on the role exercise plays in cancer prevention and survivorship. The talk will explore the striking impact that even moderate exercise can have on your wellbeing, and how it is a key and under-utilised weapon in beating cancer.

The Irish Cancer Society is delighted to be partnering with ARC Cancer Support Centres to bring you this event.

The panel of speakers will include:

  • Prof Ronan Cahill (Professor of Surgery at University College Dublin, and the Mater Misericordiae Hospital),
  • Dr Noel McCaffrey (Medical Director, MedEx Wellness, Dublin City University),
  • Mairead Cantwell (Irish Cancer Society Researcher, School of Health & Human Performance, Dublin City University),
  • as well as patients sharing their personal experiences.

The Decoding Cancer talks enable leading cancer experts to speak to the public in layman’s terms about topics and issues around cancer and cancer research. These talks are for everyone – from cancer patients and their families, to any member of the public with an interest in cancer and cancer research.

The talk is free and open to everyone.
