It’s hard to believe that fall is here – and that it’s already been three months since our 4th annual National Conference on Work & Cancer. A couple of weeks ago, the Cancer and Careers team got to relive the excitement of that day, when we watched the official sizzle reel of this year’s conference. Now we’d like to share it with our online audience. For those of you who were able to join us last June, hopefully watching the video will bring back some positive memories of interesting and informative sessions you attended, engaging conversations you participated in, new connections you made and valuable tips you learned. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, we hope the video piques your interest and motivates you to sign up for next year’s conference.
As you’ll see, it was a terrific day, with a strong lineup of experts discussing everything from how to maximize your relationship with your healthcare team and how to decide if you’re able to work through treatment, to navigating legal & financial issues and managing side effects on the job. In addition to listening to various speakers and having their questions answered, attendees got to take home a folder of helpful publications and other material, most of which is available for free on our website.
We’ve already set a date for the 5th Annual National Conference on Work & Cancer, which will be held in New York on Friday, June 12, 2015. In January we’ll have information available on how to apply for travel scholarships to attend the Conference. In the meantime, we continue to offer various other events for patients, survivors and healthcare professionals, both in person and online. So be sure to check out our Events section.
And as always, feel free to reach out to us with your questions and comments, via e-mail, phone or Facebook. We’d love to hear from you!
