The 13th Annual Cancer Survivorship Conference, a collaboration between University of Minnesota Physicians and University of Minnesota Medical Center, is an excellent opportunity for survivors, parents, and caregivers, as well as healthcare professionals, to explore issues survivors face after cancer treatment. The free conference will “focus on maintaining wellness, while exploring the issues survivors and their families often face after cancer treatment or following blood and marrow transplantation. Survivors and their support system will learn how to better advocate for themselves and lead full and productive lives.”
The half-day conference includes: (program details)
- Continental Breakfast with featured talk, “Exercise Guidance after a Cancer Diagnosis:
Evidence and Logistics ”
- Two Breakout sessions: a choice of four topics, each session
- Lunch featuring a “Cancer Survivor Panel”
