Registration underway for six-week program in Carbondale
The SIH Cancer Institute, through its survivorship series, offers Cancer Transitions™, an evidence-based program for survivors of any cancer diagnosis who have completed treatment. The program is targeted to those who have completed their treatment within the last 24 months; however, Cancer Transitions may benefit survivors at any time in their survivorship beyond 24 months. The program covers the benefits of exercise, nutrition, emotional support, and medical management—core issues for cancer survivors.
The six-week class, taught by Tonica Anderson, Registered and Oncology Nurse, will begin on July 30. Sessions are Tuesdays from 1:00 – 3:00 PM.
There is also one follow-up session four weeks after the core program ends. Every session is two and a half hours long and focuses on specific survivorship issues, led by an expert in that subject:
• Session 1: Get Back to Wellness: Take Control of Your Survivorship
• Session 2: Exercise for Wellness: Customized Exercise
• Session 3: Emotional Health and Well-Being: From Patient to Survivor
• Session 4: Nutrition Beyond Cancer
• Session 5: Medical Management Beyond Cancer: What You Need to Know
• Session 6: Life Beyond Cancer
Participants are asked to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Snacks will be provided and participants will receive a free pedometer.
To register, contact Anderson at 618-457-5200 ext. 67133.
