Cancer treatment may affect the way men and women feel about many things, including the way they feel about their bodies and sexuality. Although these physical and emotional changes are common concerns during and after treatment, they're not a regular topic of discussion between young adults (18-39 years old) and their partners — or their healthcare team. But they should be.

This event will provide a safe space for individuals and couples to learn about sexual health and body image from experts in the field, followed by an opportunity to hear from other young adult survivors about their experiences as part of a Q & A panel session. Young adults who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as their partners, are invited to learn how to have honest conversations, seek advice and professional support if they need it, and, ultimately, reclaim their sexual health.

Please register online by March 31. Space is limited. Registration fee of $10 covers appetizers and one drink ticket.
