April 8 – The Thamesview Family Health Team is hosting the RENEW program in the Chatham-Kent area. RENEW (Resources, Education, Nutrition, Exercise, Wellness) is a free four-week program for cancer survivors featuring experts, including a genetic counsellor, registered dietitian and physiotherapist, who provide insight into the next steps in the cancer journey. When patients are discharged from cancer treatment they and their caregivers are often left with a lot of questions and need for support. At Thamesview FHT patients and caregivers can get information on screening, prevention and potential long-term side effects of previous treatments. By meeting at Thamesview, they also connect with other local survivors and share their own experiences.
Designed by the Erie St. Clair Regional Cancer Program in collaboration with the University of Windsor Faculty of Human Kinetics, there are plans to expand the program to the Sarnia-Lambton area and offer related exercise programs.
