Sept 2012: New information on the site: a slideshow on using Exercise & Nutrition as ways to lower your risk/recurrence of Cancer as well as a one page handout on the same topic.
Marie's studies were featured at NUI Galway's 16th Annual Health Promotion Conference -- you can read the summary of the poster session on page 32 of the conference booklet.
Tuam Cancer Care centre has announced a pilot programme on Cancer prevention/recurrence with Marie, and it was featured in the Tuam Herald.
And finally, a highschool in Shreveport Louisiana has advised its students to look at Marie's work on nutrition and exercise, by pointing them to this page on the MBSFitness website.We're very excited that this information is being adopted, and hopefully more highschools will follow suit.
July 17, 2012: The video of Marie's presentation to OvaCare on March 30, 2012 is now on the Media page.
