One of the great things about having CAC staff in multiple locations is, if there's a monster snowstorm in one city like there was last week in New York, someone on the CAC staff can still get to our events around the country! This past, Wednesday, January 12th, I traveled to Houston, Texas for our Balancing Cancer and Careers Seminar at the The Houston Marriott at Texas Medical Center. It was an interesting night as panelists and participants discussed issues related to employment law, the benefits of working through treatment and practical suggestions for the workplace. And I was delighted to see some familiar faces from MD Anderson in the audience as well.
Our panel of experts for the evening included:
- Kate Sweeney, Executive Director, Cancer and Careers
- Dr. Fredrick Hagemeister, Professor of Medicine, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
- Joanna Morales, Esq., Director, Cancer Legal Resource Center
