The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center’s WellBeingWell program presents patients and their loved ones with facts, guidelines, and tips about how to live a lifestyle that makes the body and mind best capable to defend itself against cancer before, during, and after treatment. Through conferences, private workshops, and newsletters, WellBeingWell ensures that the most recent and useful information is available to patients to help alleviate the physical and emotional burdens of cancer.
