I’ve Finished Cancer Treatment. Now What? Survivorship 101
Monday, August 8
6:30 – 7:45 pm

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. Join Dr. Christopher George, Medical Director, Medical Oncology, Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group, as he addresses what to expect as a “cancer survivor” and how you can partner with your medical team to recover from the treatment.
