Dr. Karen Basen-Engquist is professor of behavioral science and director of the Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Dr. Basen-Engquist's research focuses on cancer survivors and how health behavior interventions can reduce the severity of late-term side effects, improve physical function, optimize quality of life, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. She also studies ways to help people make behavior changes and ways to assess symptoms and behavior in cancer patients and survivors.

Listen to the podcast to hear Dr. Basen-Engquist talk about:

  • how to talk about diet and exercise with your doctor
  • why exercise and maintaining a healthy weight should be part of every person's long-term cancer care
  • how people who are feeling overwhelmed about having to make a lot of diet, weight, and exercise changes can start slowly to improve their health
