Join us for the next presentation in our 2020 Lifestyle Wellness Series: Getting Your Zzzzz On, presented by Dr. Leonie van Passel

Sleep is often disrupted in patients undergoing active cancer treatment and following treatment completion. Many different aspects of normal sleep will be reviewed, typical problems seen commonly in the community related to sleep and in particular in cancer survivors will also be reviewed.  We will discuss symptom management, tips and tricks and have plenty of time for questions and answers!

Please RSVP to kelly@teamtony.org or 941-227-4404 by July 10, 2020.  Once you have RSVP’d, Zoom instructions will be sent prior to the event.
