This coming Saturday, November 4, 2017, we’re hosting our 3rd annual West Coast Conference on Work & Cancer, in Los Angeles. And you know what they say about the third time — it’s bound to be the charm!
We’ve planned a full day of informative sessions on everything from privacy and deciding whether to disclose, to working through treatment, legal issues and health insurance. In addition, we’ll cover topics such as job re-entry, reasonable accommodations and tips for managing side effects at work.
And it’s all free — thanks in part to our super-generous sponsors: Genentech; QVC; Novartis Oncology; Sephora Stands, Classes for Confidence; and Workplace Transitions for People Touched by Cancer. Without their support, this important event would not be possible.
So if you’re newly diagnosed, in treatment or post-treatment and trying to manage your employment situation — or you’re a caregiver or healthcare provider assisting someone who is at that intersection of work & cancer — join us! Our expert speakers will provide you with key data, helpful tools, and valuable resources that will inform and empower you to keep moving forward.
For details and to register, simply click here, but be sure to do so today!
And please help us spread the word to anyone you think might benefit from the conference. That’s what our awesome Community Partners have been doing, so we want to give them a big shout-out for their efforts as well: Cancer Support Community Benjamin Center; Cancer Support Community Pasadena; Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; Stupid Cancer; Susan G. Komen Los Angeles County; Triage Cancer; and Young Survival Coalition.
The CAC team is really looking forward to returning to the “charming” City of Angels. And we hope to see you there!
