Our Lab

Dr. Heather Leach

Several of our current projects are focused on promoting life-long physical activity and using exercise to improve physical and psychological outcomes in cancer survivors.

The goal of the PATP Lab is to determine the best ways to get people active in order to prevent chronic disease, and help people recover from chronic diseases.
