Where:
Room 7, Dana Health Education Center

Survivors, family members, caregivers and anyone interested are welcome to attend. The meetings will
provide information and education on a variety of topics relating to the treatment and recovery process
for both survivors and caregivers. At each meeting, we will have a guest speaker that will give short
presentations and then open the floor for discussion.

The meetings will also provide an opportunity for reassurance and personal exchange between survivors
and caregivers.

Please be aware that these meetings are not held to offer specific medical advice, but to provide peer
support and education. This is a great place for you to meet and share with others who have been
through similar experiences.
