Community Education Series

REC Education Sessions

The Lippincott Resource & Education Center offers free monthly hour-long education sessions.  The sessions will be led by specialists and provide information to patients, their family, staff, and community members on various cancer topics. This is a great chance to have your questions answered as well. Sessions have been held on skin cancer prevention, clinical trials, nutrition, spirituality, genetics, survivorship, caregiving, and more. We’re always open to topic ideas, so feel free to reach out if you’d like to suggest one!
