Founded as the first radiation oncology center to integrate exercise medicine and nutritional guidance into its treatment prescriptions, Inspire Oncology is making a difference in the lives of its

    “Our patients can be certain they are receiving the most advanced treatment by the most qualified hands,” says Dr. Pollock, “Additionally, we discuss lifestyle interventions that are associated with a better chance of survival, better tolerance of treatment, and ultimately better quality of life.”

    For years, the standard of care has emphasized the importance of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy in cancer treatment, but recent research has unveiled the profound impact of exercise and nutrition on patient outcomes. Some studies point to as much as
    a 60-percent reduction in the risk of dying from the most common cancers. Dr. Pollock and her colleagues at Inspire Oncology recognize this and incorporate exercise and nutrition prescriptions into their recommendations.

    Dr. Pollock graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University with a degree in neuroscience and behavior and then attended Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where she graduated with a distinction in research. Dr. Pollock completed her residency training in radiation oncology at the University of Maryland Medical Center. While there, she was actively involved in education, clinical research, and departmental leadership. She was chief resident and received multiple awards, including 2023 Medical Resident of the Year. She is currently board-eligible by the American Board of Radiology in 2024.

    “All of my passion and preparation culminate in one moment in time when I’m able to connect with my patients and help them understand that we both have unique responsibilities and roles in this partnership, and ours is a partnership for life,” she says.
