Beating Cancer with Exercise - Marquam Hill Lecture

Exercise is known to prevent and help manage chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease. Can exercise also help cancer survivors live longer and better? This question is at the heart of a compelling body of research led by Kerri Winters-Stone, Ph.D. research professor in the OHSU School of Nursing. Her exercise trials have shown that cancer survivors can benefit from specific exercise programs that reverse treatment-related side effects and symptoms, including bone and muscle loss and declining physical function. Dr. Winters-Stone and colleagues want to know more about the healing power of exercise. Can it slow cancer progression? Can exercise help both the patient and family members affected by cancer? Early results have revealed unexpected benefits for patients who exercise with their spouse. Find out how this research will contribute to safe, targeted and effective exercise programs so that all people affected by cancer can make positive lifestyle choices for long-term health.

Film Screening: Urban Rez

Urban Rez, a one-hour documentary, explores the controversial legacy and modern day effects of the federal government’s assimilation policies that relocated American Indians from reservations to urban areas in order to end the Indian reservation system.

Interviewees also speak about the challenges of maintaining one's own tribal traditions — from language to hunting — while assimilating into the larger society. Actor, musician and Oglala Lakota member Moses Brings Plenty narrates this insightful film about this seldom-told chapter in American history.

Book Discussion & Summaries

Failing Forward:  Turning Mistakes into Stepping Stones for Success by John Maxwell & The Confidence Code by Katty Kay & Claire Shipman Failing Forward: “Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.  Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell has learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.  I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway.  Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. “ The Confidence Code: Confidence.
