Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Kelly Kivette, LRT, CTRS and Kelley Marrale, LRT, CTRS. Many people believe that all stress is bad, but you may have heard that there's "good stress" and "bad stress." Did you know that bad stress can affect your immune system? This is your opportunity to learn about the effects of stress on your body and how you can manage it in a way that can be vital for a healthy life.   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.

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Heidi Gennser, MDiv, BCC.

Learn strategies for fostering this open communication during difficult times.
