Addressing Psychosocial Needs of Melanoma Survivors

Living with melanoma is emotionally stressful, no matter which side of the challenge you are on. Melanoma has more than a physical impact when living with the disease. It’s also a significant source of emotional distress, anxiety, and depression—both during treatment and after.

Our new program, “Beyond the Clinic: Living Well With Melanoma,” will feature topics seldom discussed in the exam room but essential to patients and their families during and beyond treatment. Led by the Director of Cancer Survivorship for Kaiser Permanente San Francisco, Raymond Liu, M.D., Beyond the Clinic: Living Well With Melanoma is a monthly live webinar designed to support patients’ and families’ emotional needs.

If you miss a program, don’t worry; we record our sessions so you can watch or listen to them at a time that works for you. You can view past webinars here.
