Presented by Christopher George, MD, Medical Director, Medical Oncology, Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group

Cancer treatment can require a patient’s full attention and energy for months or even years. And when it is done, the treatment can leave patients emotionally and physically spent—and even a bit disoriented as they adjust to life after cancer. Dr. George will address what to expect as a “cancer survivor” and how you can partner with your medical team to recover from the treatment and remain cancer-free.
