Over 14/5 million men and women are cancer survivors, due to early detection and advances in cancer treatment. However, many survivors are dealing with problems that are related to the type of treatment they received.

This speaker’s panel will address two problems that may occur with one or more of the active treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation). Elizabeth Shaughnessy, MD PhD, surgical oncologist and professor of surgery, and Rene Thomas, DPT, CLT-LANA, physical therapist, will discuss lymphadema resulting from surgery and/or radiation. Richard Curry, MD, neuro-oncologist, will discuss a problem called impairment of cognitive functioning.

Cancer survivors are encouraged to attend to learn about these treatment-related effects and ways to manage them. Time will be dedicated to questions and answers.

For questions, contact Patricia Woellert, MSW at (513) 558-9911 or Beverly Reigle, PhD, RN at (513) 558-4472.
