Gilda's Club New Series for Cancer Survivors

Aug. 6, 2009

Just about anyone who's had any experience with cancer knows that even after treatment some side effects linger. As survivors return to work, home life and busy routines, they notice changes that should be addressed.

August 12: “Chemo Brain,” is a lecture with Larry Miller, PsyD, Clinical Health Psychologist, Columbia St. Mary’s Cancer Center. Learn what chemo brain is and if there is a way to alleviate symptoms.

August 19: “Psychological Wellness: What It Is and How To Achieve It,” is a lecture with Esther Grinnell , MSW Program Director. Well being is a state of mind available to everyone. Learn how to achieve a sense of personal and internal health.

August 26: “Comfort Shawls,” is a lecture and demonstration by Marcia Eiseman, artist and storyteller. She uses music, sharing, story-telling and poetry to help people face adversity.

September 2: “Living a Mindful Life” is presented by Paul Norton, MD. He is a practicing Mahayana Buddhist in the tradition of the Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. He is also a pediatrician, and he practices developmental behavioral pediatrics
