Behavioral Health

At the Cancer Center at Illinois, cancer researchers are concerned with improving both the physical and mental health of cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. Cancer scientists focused on studying behavioral health are interested in understanding the connection between human behaviors and the overall well-being of their bodies and minds. Food and drink habits, hobbies, and exercise can all impact physical and mental health — and can have long-term benefits and consequences for those diagnosed with cancer.
