Social workers and nurses in attendance will walk away with a better understanding of how to function as an adult while coping with a cancer diagnosis. This webinar will discuss many of the life skills that should be taught in high school, including dealing with finances after a diagnosis, insuring for an adequate insurance portfolio (life, health, disability, etc.) and creating an estate plan. This webinar will provide social workers, nurses, and other types of health care professionals with a foundation to help patients make those decisions and provide appropriate referrals. All attendees will have the opportunity to ask the speakers questions in real time via a chat-box.
