Breast Health: Knowledge is Power
14th Annual Breast Health: Breast Cancer Survivorship Retreat: You’ve Completed Treatment, Now What?
Survivorship experts will offer guidance to women with a history of breast cancer on ways to reclaim their lives, understand and cope with treatment side effects, address common issues with body image and sexual health, and adopt healthy nutrition and exercise habits. Participants will learn how integrative medicine techniques can help manage stress and other effects of treatment. A panel of breast cancer survivors will share some of their challenges and how they regained control of their lives.
