Educational Webinars for Skin Cancer Patients and Caregivers

AIM at Skin Cancer’s online webinar series, hosted by Krista Rubin, MS, FNP-BC, Skin Cancer & You, provides a wealth of information on various aspects of skin cancer treatment, management, and emotional well-being.

One significant advantage of providing these educational webinars on virtual platforms is their accessibility. Many cancer patients often face physical limitations that make attending in-person events challenging. These on-demand webinars allow you to learn from the comfort of your home, eliminating the need for travel or physical exertion. Additionally, these 30-minute webinars enable participants to interact with medical experts in real time through Q&A sessions and/or chat features.

These webinars provide in-depth guidance tailored for skin cancer patients and their caregivers, covering a range of topics from exploring treatment options to managing side effects and developing coping strategies.
