Free Cancer Educational Program Offered August 8: “Coping with the Cost of Care”

West Chester Hospital and Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky are partnering to bring support, education and information to cancer patients, cancer survivors, and to members of the local community who have been touched by cancer.

The two organizations are offering a free cancer education program for the public, entitled “Coping with the Cost of Care” on Saturday, August 8.

This seminar will teach attendees how to talk with their health care team to better understand the financial, employment and disability issues often related to a cancer diagnosis. Specific topics that will be covered include health insurance, obtaining medical prescription medication, employment and disability, income and managing medical debt. This seminar will also assist attendees with identifying other potential sources of financial support and income.

This free series is offered throughout the year at West Chester Hospital and features informal presentations by physicians and other health care professionals in a casual, relaxed environment. Representatives from Cancer Support Community and West Chester Hospital are available to discuss the challenges of a cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery, as well as provide information about their cancer programs and services.
