Managing Cancer Treatment Side Effects with Cannibis/CBD

June 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


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 Eastern and Central Maine, the Dempsey Center has partnered with the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center to bring their services to the Ellsworth area.

The forth offering in the 2022 Spring collaborative is Managing Cancer Treatment Side Effects with Cannabis/CBD and will take place Friday, June 3, 2022 on Zoom or in the Activity Room at the Beth Wright Center if you do not have access to Zoom at home.

The discussion will include 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. Join the Dempsey Center and experts Dr. Dustin Sulak and Shari Berman to discuss alternative and adjunctive ways to manage the side effects of cancer and cancer treatments.

Using the Dempsey Connects virtual platform, clients of Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center will be able to access select programs on a large screen at the Center in Ellsworth, or virtually from the comfort of their own home. 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, these telecasted programs will be provided at no cost. This program is possible thanks to the support of Jane’s Trust, a charitable foundation located in Boston, MA, and Hannaford Foundation.
