Please note that the breakfast has reached the max capacity.
Wendy S. Harpham is a doctor of internal medicine, 27-year cancer survivor, best-selling author, nationally recognized speaker and patient advocate. From both sides of the stethoscope, Wendy has used her useful perspective to help patients become Healthy Survivors -- namely, survivors who get good care and live as fully as possible.
Since her diagnosis, Wendy has played an important role in raising awareness among clinicians and in empowering patients to talk with their healthcare team about the challenges of survivorship, such as coping with post-treatment fatigue, raising healthy children when a parent has cancer, and participating in clinical trials.
