Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Susan Gaylord, PhD. Although some stress is considered beneficial, excessive stress that lasts a long time should be avoided. Learn about the role of inflammation as it relates to cancer and how to incorporate the practice of mindfulness skills. 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.
