Workshops, Lectures and Education
Workshops are hands-on, self-care activities offered to teach members new skills, such as Relaxation & Guided Imagery, or keep minds busy and creative, such as arts & crafts, or to practice mind-body skills, such as yoga. Workshops are offered throughout the month, some on a regular basis, and some just once. Keep an eye on the Calendar for workshops that interest or challenge you.
For more formal learning, lectures are offered a few times a month by community volunteers who are experts in their field. Topics have included nutrition, advances in treatment, how to handle difficult emotions, or afternoon gatherings called “Lunch & Learn” on various topics, such as genetics & cancer and lymphedema.
Many of our lectures are part of the Frankly Speaking About Cancer Series. These include the most current information about certain subjects, and are presented by medical personnel, or other experts. Learn about specific diagnosis related information, Cost of Care, and more.
