Meet 5 For The Fight Fellow: Adriana Coletta, PhD, MS, RD

Dr. Adriana Coletta, a 5 For The Fight Fellow, is studying how nutrition and exercise can complement care.

Fueled by her passion for exercise and patient care, Dr. Adriana Coletta, PhD, MS, RD helps those with cancer change their lifestyles to incorporate better nutrition and exercise habits.

“I truly believe that we can be the model program for cancer centers nationwide and worldwide,” she says.

“I’m hoping that we can get exercise services eventually reimbursed by insurance companies and just be part of the care plan, like everything else. I’m so excited for this opportunity because it allows us to take that first step in doing this work and really transforming patient care.”

From 8–5 I’m working at Qualtrics and supporting #5fortheFight. At other hours of the day, you can find me cooking, reading, running, crafting, or Netflixing.
