Dr. Ligibel's research looks at the relationship between diet and exercise and breast cancer risk and prognosis. Her current project is the Breast Cancer Weight Loss (BWEL) study, which is looking at connections between exercise, diet, weight management, sleep, and health and wellness outcomes in women being treated for breast cancer.

Listen to the podcast to hear Dr. Ligibel talk about:

  • the progress of the BWEL study so far

  • how the BWEL study is different from other studies that looked at low-fat diets and breast cancer

  • why the BWEL study wants to examine methods that work best to help women diagnosed with breast cancer lose weight and exercise more
