Tuesday, August 16, 2022

Erlanger Health System announces registration is now open for the first ever Survivin’ and Thrivin’, a cancer survivorship symposium, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 17.

This inaugural event is designed for women impacted by cancer. Hear from a variety of women’s specialists, including Dr. Beth Snell and Dr. Shae Connor, on topics such as sexual health after cancer treatment and strategies for stress relief to exercise and nutrition.

“This event has something to offer any woman who has been diagnosed and gone through some form of cancer treatment as that journey profoundly impacts and changes us,” said Janet Kramer-Mai, Erlanger Oncology Support Services director. “We are a forum of women invested in helping other women to improve their overall health and quality of life after their cancer journey. We wanted to create a space filled with women in similar walks of life with a female-only audience. At Survivin’ & Thrivin’, we will discuss methods to improve physical, emotional and sexual health on the road to discovering a healthy ‘new normal’ for these incredible survivors.”

The event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at Chattanooga State Community College – Health Science Center. Registration is $10 and lunch will be provided. This special symposium is hosted by Erlanger Women’s Health, Erlanger Cancer Institute, and University Surgical Associates.
