Jonesborough Senior Center to host cancer education workshops

The Jonesborough Senior Center will offer a free Cancer: Thriving and Surviving workshop starting on Wednesday, March 9 from 1 3:00 p.m. The six-week program is designed for people with cancer and caregivers to learn basic skills necessary to self-manage their disease and work effectively with their health care professionals. Classes will be held every Wednesday from March 9 until April 13.

A self-management approach to cancer education gives cancer patients/survivors the knowledge, tools and confidence to take day-by-day control of their health and treatment decisions.

The Cancer: Thriving and Surviving Program is conducted by two leaders certified by the Self-Management Resource Center Cancer: Thriving and Surviving Trainers. This is a partnership between the Jonesborough Senior Center, UT extension office, First Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability and the Washington County Health Department.

Space is limited. Contact the Jonesborough Senior Center at 423.753.4781 to sign up.
