Patient Education

The diagnosis of cancer can lead to difficult emotions and decisions surrounding cancer news. With this in mind, Deaconess offers opportunities for patients and caregivers to learn about their condition and participate in educational programs and community events. We also provide access to MyHealth, our virtual resource center, which offers the latest articles on health, written by your Deaconess expert doctors and staff. Resources, risk assessments, and educational tools are available to help during this difficult time.
