Tiffany Won-Shau Chen MD, internal medicine resident at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, discusses her most recent study. “The research I presented details a randomized, prospective study done to evaluate whether it would be feasible and effective to implement a yoga program for breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy that could reduce patients’ chemotherapy-related symptoms and improve their quality of life.” She added, “Our results showed that after participating in the yoga program for 12 weeks, there were significant decreases in patient-reported nausea and significant increases in reported energy levels.”
