Keynote Speaker

Kerri Winters-Stone, PhD

Elnora E. Thompson Distinguished Professor, School of Nursing, Oregon Health & Science University
Co-Director, Knight Cancer Institute Community Partnership Program, Oregon Health & Science University
Research Professor, School of Nursing, Oregon Health & Science University
Program Co-leader, Cancer Prevention and Control Program, Knight Cancer Institute, Oregon Health & Science University

As an exercise scientist, Dr. Winters-Stone’s research focuses on the effects of cancer treatment on musculoskeletal health and cancer recurrence risk and the ability of exercise to improve health and longevity in cancer survivors. The long-term goal of her research is to develop prescriptive exercise programs for cancer survivors that meets their needs and preferences and optimizes their health outcomes.

Her research has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the American Cancer Society, Movember Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Oregon & SW Washington.  She has completed numerous randomized controlled exercise trials aimed to optimize body composition, physical function and survival in breast and prostate cancer survivors and recently completed the largest clinical exercise trial aimed to reduce falls among women cancer survivors. Dr. Winters-Stone is committed to translating her evidence-based interventions to the community and to survivors across the country. She has authored the book “Action Plan for Osteoporosis” which is part of the American College of Sports Medicine’s Action Plan series of evidence-based exercise guides for health and is leading a project sponsored by the Movember Foundation to develop an internet based tailored exercise program and support program to prostate cancer survivors across the US.
