FREE WORKSHOP TO HELP PEOPLE BETTER MANAGE SIDE EFFECTS
Gilda’s Club hosted a free workshop for cancer patients and their caregivers entitled “Frankly Speaking About Cancer Treatment” on September 29, 2015. Designed to help people understand and manage the physical and psychological side effects of treatment.
“As people live longer with cancer,” said Melissa Wright, Program Director, Gilda’s Club, “effectively managing the physical and psychological effects of treatment is increasingly important to improving quality of life.” Today more than 10 million Americans are cancer survivors, many of whom regularly receive a range of cancer-related treatments.
The Workshop included:
Katie Browne MS, RN, NP-C, Iowa Cancer Specialists,
Frankly Speaking About Cancer Treatment is part of a Frankly Speaking About Cancer series, a collection of cancer-related education programs created by Cancer Support Community. The Frankly Speaking About Cancer Treatment program is made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Amgen Inc.
