Conference Speaker Focus – Kathy LaTour
Fear of cancer recurrence is among the most commonly reported problems and one of the most prevalent areas of unmet needs for cancer survivors. Elevated levels of this fear can cause considerable disruption in social functioning and affect well-being and quality of life, according to research at the National Institutes of Health.
With increasing proportions of patients diagnosed with cancer becoming long-term survivors, cancer rehabilitation and survivorship programs must consider offering guidance regarding coping with this fear. Well Within is excited to have Kathy LaTour present on Fear of Recurrence on September 27, 2014.
Kathy LaTour is a two-time cancer survivor, author of The Breast Cancer Companion, performer, award-winning faculty member in Corporate Communications & Public Affairs at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas as well as editor of CURE Magazine. Kathy has appeared on the Today Show, performed in her one-woman show One Mutant Cell across the country, and received numerous awards, including first place from the Association of Health Care Journalists in 2011 for her article The Cost of Living.
