WEBINAR: Racial Disparities in Breast Reconstruction
Oct 21, 2020 04:00 PM, EST
Register Here to learn about the unique concerns and experiences in breast reconstruction for Black women. Everyone who registers will receive a video recording of the program.
We need insights for those of you who depend on caregivers who don't live with you. How have you been handling visits from caregivers? Have some physical visits become virtual? Have caregivers "virtually" accompanied you to your doctor's appointments? Do you have any safety/distancing strategies for when you do need a physical visit from a caregiver to your home? Let us know how this has been going for you by posting HERE or PM'ing the Mods.
We'd like feedback on how to navigate holiday social events/visits. How are you feeling about the upcoming holiday season considering the persisting limitations posted by COVID-19? Are you struggling with whether or not you should be visiting with family during the holidays? Our editorial team is developing an article about what's on our community members' minds as the holidays approach. We'd love to hear from you HERE or PM us Mods
