Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Education Class

11/26/2012

Historically, young adult cancer survivors have not been seen as a separate population with a unique set of physical, emotional and practical needs. This group falls between pediatric and adult oncology, which often means young adult patients do not receive adequate resources and support services. The objectives of the class are to bring light to this underrepresented population, address the distinctive characteristics of this age group and highlight several resources already in place to serve the needs of young adult cancer survivors and their health care professionals.
