The Dietitians and Social Workers of the Patient and Family Support Team offer classes for cancer patients and their family members/friends to go to. These classes give information that can help cancer patients care for themselves while undergoing treatment. Classes include "Food for Thought" which gives information to patients about how to eat well, manage symptoms, and stop losing weight and additional pertinent information.
The "Take a Breath" class gives patients information about how stress affects the body and practice coping strategies to help patients relax and feel better.
A "Money Matters" class gives patients information on financial assistance programs available through government and cancer charities and helps patients complete forms.
