In a Fog: The Physical and Emotional Effects of Breast Cancer Chemotherapy

Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program in collaboration with Winthrop-University Hospital Breast Health Center presents a special forum for those who have undergone treatment for breast cancer. Two leading specialists in the field of breast cancer and mental health will address the physical and emotional effects of breast cancer chemotherapy, including what is often referred to as “chemo brain.”

Join us as we explore some issues associated with chemotherapy:

  • neurological symptoms
  • cognitive changes
  • emotional and sexual health
