Free Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Class to Bolster Your Practice [Resource]

I am privileged to co-present Adolescent & Young Adult Issues, a LIVESTRONG Community Education Class, on Thursday, October 25, 2012, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM CDT. I am passionate about adolescent and young adult (AYA) oncology issues as this population Рthose ages 15 to 39 Рhas not experienced improved overall cancer survival rates in comparison to their younger or older cohorts within the last three decades. In addition, the AYA population has unique physical, emotional, and practical concerns all nurses and other healthcare professionals should be aware of as well as the appropriate referral sources to adequately help this group of patients.

Whether you’re a cancer survivor, a healthcare professional, or simply someone interested in health, join me for this free education class either in person or online.
