Survivorship Empowerment Class Open To All Cancer Survivors

Tuesday, March 20, 2018
CHI Memorial Rees Skillern Cancer Institute will host a Survivorship Empowerment class on Tuesday, March 27 at 5 p.m.  The free class is open to all cancer survivors, regardless of where they received treatment, and their care givers.

"People often wonder what they can do to get and stay healthy once cancer treatment is complete.  Lifestyle changes, like eating healthier and increasing physical activity, can lower your risk of cancer and death, according to a 2014 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention," officials said.

During the Survivorship Empowerment class, participants will learn about the role of nutrition in reducing the chance of cancer recurrence.  There will be a cooking demonstration and food sampling with dietitians from the CHI Memorial Reese Skillern Cancer Institute.  Survivors and guests will also learn how exercise and physical activity can help manage the side effects from chemotherapy and improve quality of life for cancer survivors.

For more information, and to register for this free class, call 423-495-7778.
