A partnership of Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan and Breastlink New York, this innovative program is designed to share the latest in health and wellness programs, while also bringing complementary care to those living with breast cancer. Based on scientific findings about the importance of a plant-based diet and regular exercise for healing, our robust program includes a range of classes, lectures, and events. Topics include nutrition, massage, yoga, and aerobics, all of which have been shown to help with the side effects of cancer and boost healing.
