For the fifth consecutive year, Mount Auburn Hospital, a part of Beth Israel Lahey Health, will celebrate National Cancer Survivorship Day on Sunday, June 2, 2019 with free presentations, workshops, and lunch for members of the community affected by cancer. The title of this year’s event is Embracing a New Future, with a focus on using adversity to empower positive transformation.
The Survivorship Day event features seven workshops for participants, including journaling for self-care, meditation and mindfulness, therapeutic painting, Nia (therapeutic dance), and a workshop on superfoods followed by a cooking demo led by Mount Auburn Hospital’s Dietetics Department. In addition, the Silent Spring Institute will present on how to avoid common household toxins. Silent Spring Institute is a non-profit research organization that partners with physicians, public health and community advocates and other scientists to identify and break the links between environmental chemicals and health.
The event is free and open to anyone in the community living with cancer, as well as survivors, and their caregivers.
Registration opens at 9:30am and the program ends at 2:30pm. For more information or to register for the event, visit www.mountauburnhospital.org/survivorshipday2019
