Cancer Education Lectures and Seminars
Since 2003, Cancer Pathways has offered cancer education lectures, at no cost to participants, around the Puget Sound. The topics are cancer-related and have included lectures on specific cancer diagnoses, psycho-social and emotional issues, family-related concerns, integrative medicine, cancer prevention, death and dying, and some of the practical aspects having to do with cancer such as finances, wills, and resources. Our goal is to provide information that empowers people to make informed decisions that directly affect the quality of their lives.
