Lurie Cancer Center Learning Series

Cancer Connections

At the Lurie Cancer Center, your treatment plan includes care for the mind, body and spirit. Cancer Connections is just what the doctor ordered, introducing tools, techniques and services you can use to reenergize during and after treatment. Patients and caregivers are invited to attend and learn from cancer experts, network with other patients and caregivers, and find local and national support resources available to both patients and caregivers.
