    Discovering Nature’s Impact on Cancer Survivors and Caregivers

    Saturday, October 23 | 9:30 – 11:00 a.m.

    Dr. David Victorson, PhD
    Professor of Medical Social Sciences, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
    Associate Director, Cancer Survivorship Institute, Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University

    Breathe in the fresh autumn air – how does that make you feel? Relaxed? Refreshed?

    Research reveals that time in nature can reduce stress and increase our overall sense of well- being. Dr. David Victorson, co-founder of True North Treks, an organization that guides young adult cancer survivors and caregivers through wilderness treks across the United States, shares about the positive health benefits that nature provides to those affected by cancer.

    From cognitive and emotional to social and physical benefits, the good that comes from time outdoors is vast. Learn about how nature delivers these effects, and ways to connect with it from wherever you are. Following the talk, we encourage you to get outside and join us for an optional virtual walk from your own backyard!
