West Coast Conference on Work & Cancer
Cancer and Careers' 7th annual West Coast Conference on Work & Cancer was held virtually on Saturday, October 16, 2021 ! This free, daylong event explored the complexities of balancing treatment and recovery with employment and welcomed patients, survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, employers / HR and more.
We know that not everyone has access to reliable technology in their home, which is why, this year, we hosted our Technology Assistance Program (TAP). This application-based program for cancer patients and survivors offered a onetime award of (1) laptop (such as a Chromebook or similar device) to a limited number of recipients.
