Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online telehealth lecture with AnnMarie Walton, PhD, MPH, RN, OCN, CHES. Research indicates that individuals in the agricultural industry who come in to contact with certain pesticides have an increased risk of developing leukemia and other cancers. This lecture will review a study done to understand which pesticide protective behaviors, mandated to be taught by the Worker Protection Standard, farmworkers actually practice. It will also provide insights into clinical considerations in caring for this patient population. RN and Allied Health lectures offer CNE and ASRT continuing education credit for eligible participants. We invite anyone interested to view our lectures. Lectures are viewable online via GoToWebinar or by participating in the lecture at one of our designated viewing sites. Please contact us for more information about GoToWebinar registration or to be connected with a site coordinator near you.

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Melissa Holt, RN, BSN, OCN. Knowing how to provide support to friends and family members in times of need can be difficult. Learn how to find the words and the silence to show how deeply you care when communicating with others facing cancer. Community Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information. Lectures are viewable online via GoToWebinar or by participating in the lecture at one of our designated viewing sites. Please contact us for more information about GoToWebinar registration or to be connected with a site coordinator near you.
