Discover Helpful Resources and Tools to Live Your Life 

A cancer diagnosis shouldn’t keep you from living the life you want to lead. Our conference will feature topics seldom discussed in the exam room, but important to patients in treatment, recovering or who have been cured. You’ll discover the tools, resources and support you need to stay physically, emotionally and mentally strong throughout your entire cancer journey.

Breakout sessions include:
•    Mindfulness and Spirituality
•    End of Life
•    Family of Caregivers – Wonder and Worries
•    Meditative Movement
•    Role of Integrative Medicine in Cancer Care

Join Expert-led Discussions 

Cancer care and treatment extends beyond the exam room for many patients. This symposium offers individuals with cancer at any stage of their journey, their loved ones and their caregivers the opportunity to hear top experts in cancer diagnosis, treatment and management discuss important strategies for coping with the effects of cancer. These include:

•    Physical activity
•    Complementary and integrative therapies
•    Stress management techniques
