Guest Speakers in the Spotlight @ The Summit




Next up in the Spotlight for The Summit, I’m extremely excited to introduce: Professor Anna Campbell MBE. Anna Campbell is Professor in Clinical Exercise Science at Edinburgh Napier University. For the past 22 years she has worked in the field of exercise oncology and has been instrumental in the implementation of evidence-based exercise programmes for people affected by cancer across UK.

Anna has published over 50 peer reviewed research papers and three educational book chapters on the subject of cancer and exercise. As key advisor to Macmillan Cancer Care, she worked on the development of the UK wide MoveMore programmes. Professor Campbell is Director of CanRehab (CanRehab.co.uk) an international provider of training on exercise-based cancer rehabilitation for health professionals and fitness specialists. She is also chair of the charity CanRehab Trust (canrehabtrust.org) which matches people affected by cancer with cancer exercise qualified instructors and provides remote and face to face exercise programmes.


Anna is part of a small international working group of exercise experts “Moving Through Cancer” responsible for updating the evidence-based exercise prescription guideline for the provision of clinical and community-based exercise programmes for cancer patients and survivors. Finally, Professor Campbell is part of the WHO Cancer Rehabilitation 2030 working group.


During The Summit, Anna will be providing one of her famous motivational warm ups for us before our wild-swim/dook and will also provide an interactive workshop based on the wealth of her expertise. This is a unique chance to spend some time having fun with this amazing woman and hear her wisdom. Come along! Booking link for December Discounts: www.heathergwenbird.com/the-summit
