This year’s virtual National Conference on Work & Cancer will be another engaging day filled with need-to-know information on the complexities of balancing treatment and recovery with employment. Join us online this Friday, June 25th!
We’re pleased to offer some brand-new sessions that you won’t want to miss! Engaging HR: A Conversation with Kim Seymour will be an intimate conversation with Kim Seymour, Chief People Officer, WW (formerly Weight Watchers) where she will discuss how to have effective discussions with HR and how to navigate getting the best support from your employer. Maya Feller, MS, RD, CDN, will present Cancer, Work & Nutrition: Developing Healthy Habits, offering practical strategies for thinking about nutrition and maintaining a balanced diet during the workday and beyond. And become empowered to set boundaries in your workplace through this new interactive session, Reimagining Your Boundaries, by Ali Schaffer, LCSW.
In addition, important topics such as disclosure, working through treatment, communicating with your doctors will return.
