Who is eligible?

Local residents and patients age 18+ who are currently undergoing or have undergone cancer treatment in the past year.

What does it entail?

A complimentary 3-month membership to the Darien Y, which includes access to our Wellness Center, pools, group fitness classes and other amenities. In addition, all participants will receive an hour of personal training each week with one of our certified Cancer Exercise Specialist (CES) trainers.

How do I know if it’s the right fit for me?

All interested participants will meet with revive’s Integrative Medical Coach, Dr. Dipti Joshi, who will complete an initial physical and medical history assessment to determine the best approach for the patient. Dr. J, who is also a NASM and CES-certified
