NC cancer survivors offered program to aid in care

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

An eastern North Carolina cancer center is offering survivors of the disease an opportunity to make the transition from active treatment to post-treatment care.

The program consists of six sessions. It got under way this week at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Greenville and is being offered each Tuesday by the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center. It addresses exercise, nutrition, emotional health, quality of life and medical management after cancer treatment ends.

Expert panelists at the sessions will include health care providers, nutritionists and fitness experts who will discuss various topics.

Holly Parrott Hill of the Brody School of Medicine Department of Oncology says the free program offers local cancer survivors the education and means to ease the transition and make it possible to live their best life.
