Blue Hill Memorial Hospital continues Living with Cancer speaker series

Blue Hill Memorial Hospital along with the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center and TradeWinds’ Pumped Up to Fight Cancer fund are co-sponsoring a series of four programs this fall and winter designed for cancer patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers, the hospital announced in a press release.

On Thursday, November 7, at the Blue Hill Library at 10:30 a.m., Hillary Schneider, Director of Government Relations and Advocacy for the American Cancer Society, will present “The Affordable Health Care Act.” While she will focus on the impact that the Affordable Care Act will have on cancer patients, her presentation will likely interest a broader audience as well as she will provide an overview of the health care reform law and the Health Insurance Marketplace.

The series continues this winter with additional topics of interest to patients, survivors, caregivers, and healthcare providers. On December 5, Hilary Chermak will lead an “Expressive Art” class, and on January 9, Michael Reisman, executive director of the Beth C. Wright Center, will present “Cancer Resources in the Community.”

All remaining programs will be held at the Blue Hill Library 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. No registration is necessary and all presentations are free of charge. For information, contact the Beth C. Wright Center at 664-0339.
