New Beginnings

Yale Cancer Center and Yale-New Haven Hospital held a program for cancer survivors and families in celebration of National Cancer Survivors Day. The event, dubbed New Beginnings: Complementary Approaches to Living Well Today, featured a keynote address by Dr. Kenneth Miller, director of the Connecticut Challenge Survivorship Clinic at Yale Cancer Center and an attending oncologist at the hospital. With "Dr." Mel Goldstein, a cancer survivor and chief meteorologist on Channel 8, as host, the event was free and open to the public. Workshops were: Defensive Nutrition: The role of nutrition in strengthening your immune system; Choices in Breast Cancer: A guide for women to navigate through their healthcare; Life After Cancer: Exploring options in symptom management and survivorship; or Self Healing: An interactive workshop focused on Reiki, massage therapy, and image-guided therapy for patients and their caregivers. Cancer Survivors Day is sponsored by Yale Cancer Center, Yale-New Haven Hospital, and the Connecticut Challenge Survivorship Clinic.
