Community Lunch and Learn Lecture on Cancer: When Treatment Fails – Supporting Your Loved Ones During End-of-Life Care Mar 31, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM Live at a Lunch and Learn site location near you.,
Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Heidi Gennser, MDiv, BCC. Often times, conversations with loved ones living with cancer fail to include direct and clear information.

Learn strategies for fostering this open communication during difficult times. Community Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information.
