Survivorship & Palliative Care Task Force Webinar
Wednesday October 18, 2023 11:30 AM-12:30 PM
A cancer diagnosis often brings a range of emotions, and many struggle to find a “normal” during and/or after treatment. Join us as we hear from a mental health clinician about the peaks and valleys after diagnosis, and what can be helpful. We especially welcome mental health clinicians to attend and anticipate being able to offer 1.0 CE credit for social workers and nurses for this webinar.
In support of the Second Goal of the 2021-2025 Colorado Cancer Plan, to increase the prevalence of healthy behaviors for the people of Colorado, we would like to spread the word about healthy behaviors.
