Changing Life, Challenging Cancer conference

Chicago -- Five internationally renowned cancer experts will headline the Midwest's first national symposium on psychosocial oncology, a critical growing field of cancer care that emphasizes psychological, social, and behavioral healing methods.

Jointly sponsored by Wellness House and the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, the Changing Life, Challenging Cancer conference will be held from September 26-28, 2002, at the Wyndham Drake Hotel in Oak Brook, IL.

"This unique and innovative conference will allow healthcare professionals and people affected by cancer and their families to receive state-of-the-art information, inspiration, and access to renowned professionals who rarely visit the Midwest," said Marilyn Perlman, Ph.D., Director of Special Programs at Wellness House. "The conference will focus on how people with cancer can empower their recovery and well-being through nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, social support, and spiritual exploration."

Every year more than half a million people die of cancer and 1.2 million are newly diagnosed. More than 8 million people and their families are living with cancer. The Changing Life, Challenging Cancer conference organizers hope to build awareness about the current needs of people affected by cancer and their families. The nationally renowned presenters will discuss their research and work related to cancer in the fields of nutrition, exercise therapy, environment, psychosocial influences, community and integrative medicine.

Northwestern University's Judith Paice, Ph.D., will discuss pain management, often a serious and difficult part of any cancer treatment. "The good news is that cancer pain can be relieved in the vast majority of cases," she said, "by using simple and available medications and non pharmacological therapies such as relaxation, massage and guided imagery."

Other issues to be addressed include:
