This year Duke Cancer Institute will host its annual Supportive Care and Survivorship Day on two days and at two locations — Tuesday, June 5, at Duke Cancer Center Raleigh and Wednesday, June 6, at Duke Cancer Center Durham.

“Our Supportive Care and Survivorship Day is a day set aside for rejuvenation and education,” said Cheyenne Corbett, PhD, director of Duke Cancer Institute’s Supportive Care and Survivorship Center. “It’s an opportunity to celebrate life and enjoy a bit of pampering combined with some helpful tips for navigating life during and after cancer treatment.”

Each location will feature spa services, such as complimentary makeovers, wig styling and hair trimming, massage therapy and skin consultations. Other activities include gentle yoga, tai chi, cooking demonstrations (a favorite) and expressive arts.

Educational activities will highlight supportive care services and community resources for survivorship. The Durham location will host a panel discussion featuring Duke Cancer Institute faculty and staff. Discussions will revolve around breaking science, care and support. Steven Patierno, PhD, deputy director, will serve as moderator. Panelists include:

Guests are invited to submit questions for discussion.
