WASHINGTON, DC – (Thursday, October 17, 2019) - On Saturday, November 9, Sally Werner, M.S.H.A., B.S.N., RN, Senior Vice President, Affiliate Relations, Cancer Support Community, will lead the “Support Groups” session at CURE®’s Patient Focused Sessions during the Physicians’ Education Resource® 14th Annual New York Lung Cancers Symposium®. Werner will also take part in the “Psychosocial” panel discussion. The Symposium is being held in New York City at the New York Marriott.
“I am pleased to be able to participate in this important patient focused meeting,” stated Werner. “At CSC, we know all too well the distress, anxiety, and feeling of loss of control that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis. I look forward to highlighting the positive impact that joining support groups can have and the importance of psychosocial care as part of a patient’s comprehensive cancer care.”
