The Wellness Community of Central NJ(TWC-CNJ) will host a free workshop for Ovarian Cancer survivors entitled: The Patient Active Guide to Living with Ovarian Cancer. The program will explore means to improve the quality of life during and after treatment by discussing ways to empower women to take a proactive approach to fighting the disease. The free workshop will take place on Wednesday September 23,2009 from 11am to 12:30 pm at the Wellness Community of Central NJ , 3 Crossroads Drive in Bedminster.

The workshop will feature Darlene Gibbon, MD Director of Gynecological Oncology , CINJ; Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences , UMDNJ-RWJUH. Advanced registration is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome. To register, please call 908-658-5400.

"This in depth view of ovarian cancer and its treatments will help women (and their families) be an active partner with their health care team"states Ellen Levine, MSW,LCSW,OSW-C, and Program Director of TWC-CNJ.

The Patient Active Guide to Living with Ovarian Cancer
is part of a series of national cancer-related programs created by the Wellness Community . The Patient Active Guide to Living with Ovarian Cancer was made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline Oncology.

I attend the gynecological networking group regularly and have participated in a number of Wellness Community programs. This program should be very informative and helpful.


Every Day is a Blessing!
