Series on Surviving Cancer

I finished treatment. Now what?

  • Learning how to eat and exercise to help stay healthy and reduce the risk of recurrence
  • Managing anxiety about cancer returning, sadness, depression and other emotions
  • Exploring mindfulness, meditation, spirituality and other forms of self-care and healing
  • Discussing cognitive and behavioral strategies to increase well-being and resiliency
  • Learning about integrative care and alternative healing methods. Such as naturopathy, acupuncture, massage and other complementary approaches and how they can improve your cancer journey

Presenters will be experts on the topics presented and may include local physicians, other medical staff, and other professionals from the community.
