Celebrate Survivorship Day with DCI, June 2!
The Duke Supportive Care and Survivorship Center at Duke Cancer Institute will commemorate Virtual Survivorship Day 2021 on June 2, with a variety of LIVE activities and events held in a virtual format. There will be something for everyone — including Tai Chi, yoga, a cooking demonstration, a memory-making activity for families, and two expert talks — one on emotional wellness and cancer and one on cancer survivorship.
"Traditional gatherings may have changed for all of us, but the need to stay connected remains the same," said Cheyenne Corbett, PhD, director of Cancer Support & Survivorship. "Even though we won’t be joining together to celebrate survivorship in person for this year’s Survivorship Day, you will still have an opportunity to participate in these LIVE virtual events."
Note that the LIVE events require advance registration. [Call or email with any questions]
