The Robert and Marjorie Goodson Oncology Wellness Program is a collaboration between the Cancer Center of East Alabama, HealthPlus Fitness Center, and RehabWorks outpatient rehabilitation. All are services of East Alabama Medical Center, assuring seamless care across the disciplines.
Recent studies have shown that exercise, good nutrition, and emotional and social support go a long way toward improving the quality of life of cancer patients both during and after treatment. Our Oncology Wellness Program helps patients and caregivers to live better, feel stronger, and grow through the challenges of cancer and cancer treatment.
Patients may participate in the program through all three phases of treatment: pre-treatment, intra-treatment, and post-treatment.
Services include exercise (including aquatics), massage therapy, nutritional counseling, stress management and intimacy counseling.
