Banner Thunderbird continues free “I Can Cope” series
GLENDALE, AZ (Oct. 4, 2013) – Banner Thunderbird Medical Center will continue its “I Can Cope” series from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 28. The free community lecture “Managing Effects of Illness and Treatment” will be presented by oncology nurse RuthAnn Foth, RN, and pain management specialist Charissa Elliot, BSN, RN-BC.
“I Can Cope” is a program developed by the American Cancer Society and presented in partnership with Banner Thunderbird Medical Center that provides education about cancer, treatment and coping skills for people with cancer and those who love and care for them. The knowledge and support gained from the sessions can help reduce the fear and anxiety that often occurs with a new cancer diagnosis. “I Can Cope” fosters understanding and encouragement from health care professionals, people living with cancer and those who have survived it.
The event will be in Conference Room 3A, located on the third floor of the A tower of the main hospital at 5555 W. Thunderbird Rd. in Glendale. For more information, or to RSVP, contact Kelly Clark-Gruber at (602) 865-5450.
