David Mizrahi is an Exercise Physiologist, who is currently completing his PhD investigating the role of physical activity in survivors of childhood cancer.

David volunteers in seminar talks to medical oncologist, nurses, patients and their families on the benefits of exercise in terms of long term health and minimising the symptoms of cancer and associated treatment.
