Duke Cancer Institute will host its annual Survivorship Day on two days, at two locations —Tuesday, June 4, at Duke Cancer Center Raleigh from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday, June 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Duke Cancer Center Durham.

“Our Survivorship Day is a day set aside for rejuvenation and education,” said Cheyenne Corbett, PhD, director of the Supportive Care and Survivorship Center. “This is an opportunity to enjoy pampering while receiving some helpful tips for navigating life during and after cancer treatment.”

Each location will feature spa services such as makeup and skin care consultations and wig styling and hair trimming. Other activities include massages, gentle yoga, tai chi, and expressive arts. Educational activities will highlight supportive care services and community resources for survivorship. Each location will host a panel discussion featuring Duke Cancer Institute faculty and staff. Discussions will revolve around groundbreaking science, care and support.

Guests are invited to submit questions for discussion. Participation in Survivorship Day is available at no charge to patients, caregivers, survivors and loved ones. Duke Cancer Center Raleigh is located at 3404 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, North Carolina. Duke Cancer Center is located at 20 Duke Medicine Circle, Durham, North Carolina.
