In Events, Survivors

STEFANIE GLINIANY

In this month’s Teal Talk, MOCA’s Community Support Program Manager Stefanie Gliniany shares why we’re exploring integrative health practices in our upcoming Living Well Meeting, Wednesday, July 29 at 7 p.m.

I am really looking forward to our next Living Well: Complementary Therapies virtual meeting! I encourage ovarian cancer survivors at any stage (living with ovarian cancer, living through or living beyond ovarian cancer) as well as caregivers and loved ones to join us.

Integrating the best of evidence-based complementary therapies may help reduce the side effects from treatment, boost your physical and emotional well-being and aide in your recovery from cancer. We’ll explore different integrative health methods such as mind-body therapies and natural products. We’ll also discuss the possible benefits and risks associated with these therapies and how to find reliable information and reputable practioners.

Maureen Anderson, DNP, RN, will lead our virtual event designed for ovarian cancer survivors and caregivers. Anderson is a healing instructor and integrative nurse specialist at University of Minnesota’s Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality and Healing.

We encourage you to bring your questions about complementary therapies! We’ll answer them during a live Q & A session after the presentation. Remember, this virtual Living Well meeting is free—but registration is required! Connect with us from your computer or phone, on July 29 from 7-8 p.m. Register here, today!
