According to The National Cancer Institute, "survivorship includes issues related to the ability to get health care and follow-up treatment, late effects of treatment, second cancers, and quality of life. Family members, friends, and caregivers are also considered part of the survivorship experience".<br />The University of Illinois Cancer Center Survivorship Program is proud to announce the launch of our Quarterly Seminars in Cancer Survivorship.The quarterly seminars will highlight important survivorship research taking place at University of Illinois on the effects of cancer and cancer treatment for survivors and families. Building on the Bench to Community Model, each session will feature a research presentation followed by a relevant patient story.<br />The first seminar will feature Dr. Carl Asche from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria discussing financial toxicity. After participating, learners will be able to:<br />Define financial toxicity as it relates to cancer diagnosis<br />Discuss common examples of the financial toxicity faced by patients with cancer, cancer survivors, and their families<br />Identify strategies healthcare providers can use to assist patients coping with financial toxicity<br />Refreshments will be served.<br /> dsohmer@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20180511T164722Z-2071bd5-3e8-5200337d-Oracle Fri, 11 May 2018 11:51:42 -0000 Paid research study on stressful life events and alcohol use http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20180207T173604Z-2217c89-3e8-cca554d-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=6-30-2018">June 30, 2018</a> | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20180207T173604Z-2217c89-3e8-cca554d-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Special+Campus+Events%22">Special Campus Events</a>, Other </p> Dr. Erin Berenz at The University of Illinois at Chicago is conducting a research study involving university students ages 18-25.
