Virtual Zoom Meeting- Coping with your Lymphoma Diagnosis during COVID
December 18, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
About the Presentation:
A lymphoma diagnosis can be challenging to cope with at any time, and the current pandemic has only increased stress, anxiety, and depression for many lymphoma patients. To support the mental health and well-being of the lymphoma patient community, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation, Lymphoma Research Foundation, and International Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation have collaborated to offer a special session, Coping with Your Lymphoma Diagnosis During COVID.
The session will address the challenges of dealing with a lymphoma diagnosis with a special emphasis on the additional concerns of accessing treatment during a pandemic and managing anxiety and depression as a lymphoma patient. Coping with Your Lymphoma Diagnosis is designed as an interactive session, and will begin with a general overview of the topics followed by a Q&A discussion session.
