- Support the research needed to develop evidence-based practice guidelines in both exercise oncology and oncology nutrition during cancer treatment
- Facilitate communication between the exercise oncology and oncology nutrition communities to achieve the joint goal of improving cancer treatment outcomes
- Encourage communication between researchers and clinicians working with people receiving cancer treatment
We are excited to offer this new webinar series and networking opportunity, the Exercise Oncology/Oncology Nutrition (EON) Network, coordinated by the NCI-funded Exercise and Nutrition Interventions to Improve Cancer Treatment-Related Outcomes (ENICTO) Consortium.

Challenges and Considerations in the Design and Analyses of Randomized trials of Exercise and Chemotoxicity
In this webinar, the speakers will describe the design considerations and data analysis approach used in the FOcus on Reducing Dose-limiting Toxicities in Colon Cancer with Resistance Exercise (FORCE) trial, including assessment of adherence to the exercise intervention and confounding by treatment-related side effects.
She is also a Principal Investigator of ENICTO's Adaptive randomization of aerobic exercise during chemotherapy in colon cancer.
Dr. Alexandra Binder is an epigenetic epidemiologist and cancer researcher whose research centers on the analysis of high-dimensional, -omic data to generate novel insight into the mechanisms that shape cancer etiology and survivorship. A primary focus of Dr. Binder’s research is the intersection of cancer and aging, examining how epigenetic indicators of biologic age can be used to inform risk management across the cancer control continuum to reduce the burden of disease in diverse communities.

Role of nutrition in improving cancer treatment outcomes: evidence, challenges, and future directions
This webinar will discuss the current evidence for the role of nutrition interventions in improving cancer treatment outcomes, challenges in the field and potential strategies for addressing those challenges, as well as future directions in oncology nutrition research.
Dr. Robien is a cancer epidemiologist and nutrition scientist. She is also a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Specialist in Oncology Nutrition (CSO), and practiced as an oncology dietitian for more than 10 years prior to beginning her research career.She is also a Principal Investigator of ENICTO's Coordinating Center.

Optimizing Monitoring and Reporting of Exercise Training Dose, Adherence, and Safety
The webinar will discuss a number of randomized controlled trials evaluating the efficacy of exercise training in cancer survivors has increased substantially over the past decade; however, findings from systematic reviews indicate few trials report prescribed and completed exercise training regimens. This presentation will outline methods to optimize monitoring and reporting aerobic and resistance training dose, adherence, and adverse events.
She is also a Principal Investigator of ENICTO's Study on the Effects of Exercise on Side Effects From Treatment for Colorectal Cancer.
October 25, 2 PM ET
Impact of Exercise and Nutrition on Cancer Treatment-Related Outcomes: What’s been examined and what’s yet to be examined
She is also a Principal Investigator of ENICTO's Trial of Exercise and Lifestyle in Women with Ovarian Cancer Study.
