Peter Wingfield Is Running the Vermont Marathon
With University of Vermont Medical College Team
Peter Wingfield joins his medical school’s marathon
team for the KeyBank Burlington Vermont Marathon
on Sunday, May 27, 2012. Here is what Peter says:
Turns out your Grandma was right.
All the research confirms it.
The more we understand how things work (with ever
more clarity on the molecular level) the more
obvious it becomes that going outside to play was
indeed great advice.
Exercise changes everything. It alters things inside
your cells. It helps the body fight diabetes, fight
depression, fight osteoporosis…it even fights
The "Steps to Wellness" program in Vermont is
geared towards this huge health benefit in its
program for cancer survivors.
This is what they have to say:
"Steps to Wellness is a medically based
rehabilitation program that serves the unique needs
of Cancer Survivors. The program includes a
physical therapy evaluation, medical assessment,
individualized exercise plan, and education.
Currently, the free exercise program that Steps to
Wellness offers at the end of treatment is 12 weeks
long and is two days per week. Steps to Wellness also
offers several seminars each month on diverse topics
related to survivorship, including: nutrition, stress
management and acupuncture."
They are our medical school's nominated charity for the
2012 Burlington Marathon in May. With the money we
raise, Dr. Kim Dittus and her colleagues are hoping to hire
another physical therapist and improve the hours of gym
availability. The purpose of Dr. Dittus's research is to
identify the longitudinal changes that occur in strength
and ability to be functionally active during and after cancer
