Upcoming Empowered to Live Well Session on Diet and Cancer

By Wendy Hanson, @wendyhanson


Don't miss next week's Beyond the Diagnosis: Empowered to Live Well session on Diet and Cancer. Come listen to Dr. John Shin, a physician in Hematology/Oncology at Mayo Clinic, explain whether it matters what one eats.

The session will be held on December 17th, 2019 in the Cancer Education Center located in the lobby level of the Gonda Building from noon to 1pm CT. The session will not be recorded due to patient confidentiality in the presentation room itself. An article summarizing highlights of the session will be shared on this site after the event.

Please visit the Cancer Education Center for more information on this topic and much more. We are here to support and connect you to resources when you need them most.
