Event description

Description

OhioHealth is proud to introduce a “Survivorship lecture series” – an educational lecture with survivors on the topics of their interest. We will offer these lectures on a quarterly basis with our first lecture being"FINDING YOUR NEW NORMAL".

It’s time to celebrate, your cancer treatment is over! Now what?…It is common to want your “real” life back and put cancer behind you but with that comes nagging anxiety about what happens next. During the intensity of treatment there may not have been the time to absorb the reality that cancer has become part of your life. Now is your chance. During this time you may be cancer-free but you are not free of cancer's effects as you adjust to body changes brought on by surgery or treatment that impacted your physical and cognitive abilities. There may be chronic pain, fatigue, weight loss, or weight gain. Fear of recurrence, anxiety, and sleep disorders may plague cancer survivors, sometimes for years. Financial issues may impact the family—even those who have insurance. Without help, the aftermath of cancer treatment can be as devastating as the cancer itself, let’s us help fill you in on what’s next.

Speaker/ presenter- Deepa Halaharvi, DO
