What do cancer patients need as they journey from active treatment to survivorship? Find out by attending "Patient Perspective on the End of Treatment: Transitioning from Patient to Survivor" Thursday, Feb. 21, 2:30-3:30 p.m. in the SCCA Clinic, Room G3100/G3102.

A panel of former Seattle Cancer Care Alliance patients will discuss:

  • What is the experience like to transition from patient to survivor?
  • What, if anything, has helped them make the transition?
  • How has the meaning of survivorship changed for them over the course of time?
  • What information or resources were helpful at the end of treatment?
