Halifax, Nova Scotia


In collaboration with The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation and Ultramar, The University of New Brunswick through Dr. Danielle Bouchard, The University of Prince Edward Island through Dr. Travis Saunders, the Memorial University through Dr. Erin McGowan, and Dalhousie University through Dr. Melanie Keats are all working together to build capacity in providing exercise programs for cancer in Atlantic Canada.
The Nova Scotia Cancer Care Program is organizing an activity to invite Dr. Nicole Culos-Reed, a specialist in Cancer Exercise, to Halifax in April 2018 for a workshop. We want to extend this invitation to other Atlantic provinces for health and/or exercise professionals interested in increasing their knowledge and skills specific to exercise for cancer patients and survivors.
Our funding is able to offer an online training (15 hours) for free + a 6-hour workshop in Halifax for some of you.

This training usually costs $379 + tax. Registration must be completed prior to March 2, 2018.

The online course consists of nine modules that can be completed in 15 hours. Completion of this training program is worth 24 Professional Development Credits with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP).

How to Register:
To register for the online course and have your course fee covered you must:
1. Notify Jacquelyn Teo, Dr. Bouchard’s research assistant in NB, at by March 2, 2018.
2. Include whether you plan on attending the in-person workshop scheduled for April 26th, 2018 in Halifax, at the same time. Note that the online training must be completed before coming to Halifax. Also note that you are responsible for covering your traveling costs for the on-site training.
