#TogetherSeparately: Caring for your Mental Health

May 18 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm EDT

We hope you’ll join us for a special Lung Cancer Community Talk on Wednesday, May 18 at 12 PM ET, in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month. This livestream is an opportunity to connect face-to-face with others who care about lung cancer and talk about challenges we’re facing, #TogetherSeparately.

We’re excited to have an incredible panel of speakers to discuss many important areas of caring for one’s mental health during a lung cancer diagnosis. We’ll specifically address coping with depression and anxiety, the role of palliative care, caregiver support, and more. There will also be time for Q&A with the panelists, so bring your questions!
