Breathing Easier in Lung Cancer Survivorship

Support Meeting

Join us at a meeting for people who are post lung cancer treatment. Please come and share your concerns while gathering medical and rehabilitation information from our healthcare staff. A different specialist will join the discussion each month.

This is a diagnosis-specific meeting that is co-led by social workers and nurses, and is tailored to give people an opportunity to work on adjustment to life after treatment. This may include changes in physical functioning, appearance, and lifestyle, altered self-image, fatigue, isolation, and concerns about the future. We encourage people to share concerns while gathering medical and rehabilitation information from health care staff.

Guest speakers:
Wednesday, March 20 — Stephen Chao, Physical Therapist
Thursday, May 16 — Karen Altschuler, Integrative Medicine
