Through a partnership with the Cancer Foundation for Life, UTA is providing free exercise and nutrition programs to cancer patients and survivors.
College of Liberal Arts professor Cindy Kilpatrick is positively impacted by participating throughout her battle with cancer. “As a cancer patient, I can’t control how successful my treatment is. I can’t control whether my cancer reoccurs, “says Kilpatrick, Assistant Profesor of Linguistics and TESOL. “The only thing I can control are my actions and FitSTEPS fits right into that.”
The FitSTEPS for Life program allows UTA researchers to collect critically important data about the impact of exercise on cancer patients. Their findings could have a major impact on traditional treatment models. FitSTEPS is offered to the community at no charge.
