Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Oncology Care Coordinator Dustine Parks, R.N., will speak about her role assisting cancer patients at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Virtual Cancer Support Group on Thursday, July 15, from 12 to 1 p.m.
Parks will speak about how she provides coordinated, patient-centered, supported care for cancer patients and their families. She will explain how she coordinates services, information and communication between care givers and treatment providers to advocate for patients’ health needs. Parks serves as a complimentary resource working with those living with and beyond cancer and their families to create a seamless experience of care.
Social Worker Elizabeth Liedl and Registered Nurse Lisa Slepica will also facilitate discussion. People who are newly diagnosed with cancer, undergoing treatment or post treatment and their significant others are invited. The group is an opportunity to share experiences and support one another, to listen and learn.
Virtual Cancer Support Group meetings are held the third Thursday of each month with a new topic each month. Registration for the support group is not required and there is no cost to attend.
