9th Annual West Coast Conference on Work & Cancer
Cancer and Careers is holding it's 9th annual West Coast Conference on Work & Cancer virtually on Saturday, October 21, 2023! This free, daylong event explores the complexities of balancing treatment and recovery with employment and is open to patients, survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, employers, advocates, HR professionals and anyone else touched by cancer.
We know that not everyone has access to reliable technology in their home, which is why for this event we offer our Technology Assistance Program (TAP). This application-based program for cancer patients and survivors awards (1) laptop (such as a Chromebook or similar device) to a limited number of recipients. The window to apply closed on Monday, September 4, 2023. If you are interested in future opportunities for our Technology Assistance Program, please add your name to our notification list.
