Managing Cancer Treatment Side Effects with Cannabis/CBD with Dr. Dustin Sulak & Shari Berman

October 28, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center is collaborating with the Dempsey Center to bring another new program to cancer patients and survivors in Hancock and Washington County communities.

From treating pain and nausea to helping to ease the symptoms of neuropathy, more and more studies are coming out that demonstrate positive benefits from the safe use of CBD and other cannabinoids.

On Friday, October 28, 10:00 to 11:15 am, join the Dempsey Center and experts Dr. Dustin Sulak and Shari Berman online to discuss alternative and adjunctive ways to manage the side effects of cancer and cancer treatments.

Navigating a cancer diagnosis is difficult in and of itself but finding support and connecting with those who understand adds another layer of challenges, especially when living in a rural area.

To help ease the journey through a cancer diagnosis for those living in Central Maine, the Dempsey Center has partnered with Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center to bring their services to the Ellsworth area. Using the Dempsey Connects virtual platform, clients of Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center will be able to access select programs virtually from the comfort of their own home or at the Beth Wright Center if they do not have access to computer technology. These telecasted classes will allow clients across the state access high-quality program and encourage connection between those who have been impacted by cancer.

As with all Dempsey Center and Beth C. Wright services, this online program free and is open to all. This program is possible thanks to the support of Jane’s Trust, a charitable foundation located in Boston, MA, and Hannaford Foundation.
