Events, Presentations & Workshops

In collaboration with Breast Cancer Action’s Fit & Fab exercise program and Kelly’s Boutique, Haley Rehab will offer free arm circumference measurement clinics for people at risk for lymphedema. Stay tuned for dates and locations across Ottawa, starting January 15.

Research Projects

Haley Rehab has partnered with Breast Cancer Action for many years, to help spread the word to women with breast cancer about lymphedema and ways to reduce the risk. The Lymphedema: Take Control project developed an exercise program, resources for women, and recommendations to reduce risk. One of the key recommendations was for breast cancer patients who have a lymph node dissection to get a baseline arm circumference measurement and education about lymphedema risk reduction practices. This recommendation led to arm circumference measurements being included as part of Breast Cancer Action’s Fit & Fab exercise program from January 2015.
