Patients and families face many challenges when diagnosed with cancer. Working together with a common goal our patient education focuses on needs of the patient and family so that they can actively participate in their care.
EDUCATION PROGRAMS AT THE CENTER FOR CANCER CARE
A variety of ongoing education and support programs for health professionals, patients, families, and the community are offered in our Educational Conference Room, which is equipped with audio-visual and other equipment often needed for meetings and classes.
