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!

Upcoming Education Sessions

Fox Chase Cancer Center’s Lippincott Resource & Education Center (REC) invites you to attend upcoming virtual free education sessions.

These virtual sessions will discuss cancer prevention, screening, and treatment options. Participants will also learn ways to help themselves and family members make the best choices to improve their health and wellness. There will be opportunities to submit your questions prior to the virtual sessions or participate in a live Q&A.
