September 10 – Busting Cancer Nutrition Myths

Nutrition is an important piece to the cancer journey. Along with empowerment, nutrition can also bring misinformation and misunderstanding, resulting in fear around food. Join us to learn more about the most common nutrition myths around cancer.

October 8 – Overcoming Physical Activity Barriers for Oncology Patients

Research shows that the majority of cancer patients show significant decreases in physical activity levels after a cancer diagnosis. Come join us as we explore the unique barriers and challenges cancer patients face with physical activity, and helpful strategies to overcome them.

November 12 – Go-To Interventions

A cancer diagnosis can be immensely stressful. The use of coping strategies and techniques can empower cancer patients in their pursuit of overall wellness. Join us as we explore various coping strategies that can assist in managing the challenges during the cancer journey.

December 10 – Complementary RX: Laughter, Happiness and Gratitude

Humor isn’t a cure-all, but it sure is powerful! More and more findings are proving that laughter improves our immune systems, lessens depression, relaxes us and even relieves pain. And being grateful isn’t about forcing a feeling of thankfulness or giving ourselves endless pep talks. It’s normal for people impacted by cancer to miss what they may have lost. Still, if they can find something to be grateful for most days, it can boost their mood and help them cope. Join us as we discuss tools to help your patients work laughter into their lives and get good at being grateful.
