In the October President's Message, Dr. Andrés Gómez De León joins Dr. Miguel Perales, President of ASTCT and Chief of the Adult Bone Marrow Transplantation Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, as well as Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, to explore a crucial but often underestimated aspect of hematopoietic and cell therapy transplants: the role of physical activity.
They discuss the challenges surrounding the integration of physical activity into transplant procedures and highlight proactive strategies like "pre-hab" that can make a significant difference in patient outcomes. The episode also addresses the existing research gap in this area and emphasizes the transformative effects of movement on recovery. What makes this episode even more special is that we've made it accessible to a wider audience. You can listen to this conversation in both English and Spanish.
English and Spanish transcripts are also avaiable.
