Upcoming Programs:


Death & Dying Conversations

Wednesday, January 19, from 6:30-7:30 pm via Zoom

While most of us are comfortable talking about Life, many of us shy away from death & dying conversations. Join guest speaker, Dr. Anna Maria Izquierdo, a palliative care doctor with Care For Your Health, Inc, Palliative Medicine Consultants of Greater Washington LLC, for a conversation on end-of-life care. This will be an interactive discussion.




Breast Cancer Symposium Update

Wednesday, January 26, from 6:30-7:30 pm via Zoom

Candice Mainor, MD is a medical oncologist at Lombardi Cancer Center in Washington, DC. Her specialty is breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. She will provide an overview of the latest findings in treatment, and research, from the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.




Hot Topics for Young Adults:

Let’s Talk About Sex AND Pleasure

Wednesday, February 16, from 6:00-8:00 pm via Zoom


For young adults, sex is an important topic, and pleasure may be the most important aspect of sex. For young adults with cancer, there are unique questions and concerns about sex and sexual health that the medical team may not be adequately answering, and pleasure is likely never discussed. Join us as we have a frank and honest conversation, and provide accurate information to help support a safe, healthy, and pleasurable approach to sex and cancer.
