Workplace Fitness — Fact or Fiction?


This Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) seminar will engage participants in an honest discussion about the age old question: How do I fit fitness into my day? Regular physical activity is one of the cornerstones of our health, yet too many struggle to find time to engage in meaningful activity. This seminar will provide participants with practical tips and tricks to incorporate fitness throughout the workday and in daily life. Our presenter, Stacy Curtain, received her doctoral degree in exercise physiology from the University of Miami and her certification as a cancer exercise specialist from the Rocky Mountain Cancer Rehabilitation Institute. She gained experience in implementing workplace health programs while interning at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and worked with an Integrative Health Practice at Canyon Ranch Miami Beach. Her current position as an oncology exercise physiologist at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center allows her to focus on her clinical aim of improving physical fitness, function, and wellness among cancer survivors.
