We are only 10 days away from our first Midwest Conference on Work & Cancer in Chicago! This full-day, free event will explore the challenges working people face as they try to balance their cancer treatment, recovery and survivorship with employment. The event will take place at the Hotel Monaco, located at 225 N. Wabash in Chicago, IL.
Key topics we'll be covering during the day that are truly essential pieces of the work and cancer conversation are:
- Legal Issues
- Health Insurance and Reform
- Working During Treatment
- Job Re-entry
- Job Search
- Taking Time Off
- Rebecca Nellis, VP Programs & Strategy, Cancer and Careers
