Cancer Wellness Program webinar
2021 event dates to be announced soon.
The ACSC, in partnership with Cancer Council Victoria, present a virtual Cancer Wellness Program
The Cancer Wellness Program is a free education and support program for people who have completed cancer treatment and are living with and beyond cancer. It is also for carers, partners and family members.
The following topics were presented by cancer specialists:
- Finding a new 'normal'
- Managing cancer-related fatigue
- Physical activity
Presentations included practical tips and strategies for living well with and beyond cancer.
We welcome registrations for this free event and encourage you to share this invitation with your carer, a family member or friend.
Please access the resource list from this event here.
A link to this webinar will be posted shortly.
