The Halifax Board of Health, in conjunction with the NVNA and Hospice will present the Mind-Body Component and the Impact of Psycho-social Support for those affected by Cancer on Monday, Feb. 13, at 1:30 p.m. and again at 6:30 p.m. at the Holmes Public Library, 476 Plymouth St., Halifax.
Kathleen Armany, RN, BC-HN, Program Director of The Cancer Support Community of Massachusetts, South Shore will present the program.
The medical community is increasingly aware of how the mind and body work together in our overall health and recovery from illness. Being diagnosed with cancer doesn’t just have an effect on your body; it affects the entire individual with an impact on thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes.
Making the mind-body connection can have a significant difference in your quality of life and may affect your body’s response to treatment.
Attend this informative presentation and learn the “patient active” concept and the value of a supportive community can ease the distress of a cancer diagnosis.
