Supportive Care & Survivorship Day

June 07, 2017 (All day)

Supportive Care and Survivorship Day recognizes and celebrates patients, survivors and caregivers. It’s a day full of pampering and educational activities.

Rejuvenation services offered include: complimentary makeovers, skin care consultations, wig styling, salon services, massage therapy, gentle yoga, tai chi, art therapy, and live cooking demonstrations.

Supportive Care and Survivorship Day will also feature an expert panel discussion on issues related to survivorship. Kevin Charles Oeffinger, MD, newly appointed director of Duke Cancer Institute’s Supportive Care and Survivorship Center, will be among the featured panelists. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.

The event will also include the debut of The Many Faces of Cancer, a photo essay by Duke photographer Jared Lazarus. The essay features survivors living life to the fullest — despite health-related obstacles and setbacks.

Supportive Care and Survivorship Day will take place at Duke Cancer Center on Wednesday, June 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free for patients, caregivers and survivors. However, registration is requested. To register, visit Supportive Care and Survivorship Day.
