Chattanooga will host the eighth annual Tennessee Cancer Coalition’s (TC2) Summit on Wednesday and Thursday.
The purpose of the summit is to educate and engage professionals on the State Cancer Plan, to promote regional partnerships, to provide the latest education and practical application, and to highlight evidence-based programs. The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer will join numerous other organizations and health care entities from across the state at Summit 2012.
Patricia Kassebaum, clinical director of Hatch’s House of Hope, is vice co-chair of TC2 and the state vice-chair. She said, “This program is designed for physicians, nurses, social workers, registrars, clergy, allied health professionals, administrators, advocates, coordinators of school health programs, navigators, medical and nursing students, other health care professionals and cancer survivors, said Kassebaum. “We have an outstanding line-up of presentations and world-class faculty that will share the latest evidence-based programs and beat practices to make this year’s Summit a success.”
Dr. Robert Butler, a guest speaker at Summit 2012, will be joining the Austin Hatcher Foundation staff later in the summer. Dr. Butler is the leading psychologist of Cognitive Remediation treatment. Cognitive Remediation therapy is a dynamic process that involves learning skills to promote adaptive functioning after cancer treatment. On June 7, Dr. Butler will speak about Memory, Chemobrain, & Remediation at 1 p.m. and the Practical Application for Adults and Children at 1:45 p.m.
TC2 will be held at The Chattanoogan Hotel.
