Wellness Programs at Cancer Services TRANSFORMED!

Our country has shifted in less than one week. It was just over one week ago that Julie was getting prepared for her Cook to Thrive! Class. It was a great success with recipes enjoyed and handwashing jokes made. Little did we know it will always be known as "the last class before coronavirus canceled everything."

Since then, Cancer Services has been working hard figuring out how to transform our educational programs, survivorship programs and client services.   

Listen to this episode as Julie shares updates about our programs and services, science-based information on how to deal with the current public health crisis, and fun ideas on how to stay healthy and well while at home and social distancing. 

Here are the links she mentions in the episode!
