Wednesday, November 4, 2020 7-8pm | Managing Treatment Related Side Effects

Cancer survivors are a rapidly growing population in the US because of advances in treatments and earlier detection. However, survivors continue to experience significant side effects due to their medications and cancer treatments

  • Did your cancer treatment include chemotherapy?
  • Are you on Tamoxifen, Letrozole, Anastrozole or Exemestane?

If so, you may be experiencing side effects such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Joint or muscle pains
  • Vaginal dryness or discharge
  • Fatigue
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Weight gain

Let's discuss managing side effects and the importance of screening for late and long-term effects of cancer treatment and medications. 

Project Pink'd is excited to welcome Rachael Schmidt DNP, APRN, AOCNP as our guest expert for this series. Ms. Schmidt is a nurse practitioner for the Cancer Survivorship and Cancer Risk and Prevention Programs at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha, NE.
