March 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Sasha E. Knowlton, MD
Sasha E. Knowlton, MD, will present an introduction to cancer rehabilitation, including details as to why function is important in cancer patients. Patients with cancer are living longer as a result of improved surveillance and treatment interventions. However, cancer survivors often develop functional impairments that can significantly affect their quality of life and independence. Dr. Knowlton will review common diagnoses and treatments in the field of cancer rehabilitation. She will also provide an overview of how cancer rehabilitation can help patients before and during treatment and into survivorship.
